Degas Cap small coolant leak

I have been having just a very small coolant leak coming from the degas cap. I have the egr delete and the oil cooler was replaced. I was wondering if it could be just the cap or something possibly bigger. Truck is all stock but the egr delete and oil cooler. It has 142,000 miles and doesnt tow anything. Thanks

do you have any guages to monitor your engine coolant temp and engine oil temp. make sure they're not more then 15 degrees apart while cruising around 70 mph.

or you can fabricate your own pressure test.

put a t split in your overfill hose. the run closest to your cap. and attach a mechanical boost guage with no more then 30 or so and make sure you dont build pressure super fast.

others will chime in.
