Heater goes cold when decelerating, heats back up on acceleration.

Thought I was low on coolant, opened up the degas bottle, and the pressure sprayed some coolant out... The degas bottle is half full.

I don't have a monitor, but my temp sensor on my guage cluster is reading normal.

Sometimes on acceleration, and the heater warms back up, it has a lil burnt smell to it.

What do you guys think?

A friend of mine had the exact same problem with his '04 (mine is an '07)... He said his turned out to be a cracked head.

Mine does the same thing. I wonder if this is a fairly common condition on these trucks. On mine the heater output drops off going down a hill and comes on again going up. I, too would like to know if anyone has any insight into this.

not sure on the 6.0 but my town car did the same thing turned out to be a bad impeller on my water pump. the fins had "worn" down and would only move water under load.

I kinda hope it's this, but probably not... My coolant level is great, the oil on my dipstick looks and smells fine, my temps seem fine...

I kinda think it's a partially clogged heater core, or my water pump... Only getting enough pressure during some load.

I removed the cap from the resevoir, and let it run for 30 minutes... shut it off, put the cap back on... This may have fixed the heat issue... not saying i don't have other problems, but my heat is always warm (still gets hotter when i accelerate, but i think this is normal)...
