these trucks will rev up and down on cold starts to help warm it up quicker to lower emissions levels. as far as the degas bottle, is there any white residue around the cap? and do you hear a howl/moan sound on deceleration?

It's hard to read your post but if you have a coolant leak you should pressure test the system find the leak and bleed the air out of the coolant system.
