Another Puking Truck

Has anyone found the cause yet for the degas bottle puking, Ford has just replaced my Radiator for the second time, the egr valve, the 2 thermostats, the egr cooler, and I'm still puking.

Any help will be appreciated.

Explain to a stupid person, how would a blown head gasket make the fluid resevoir erupt. The reason that I ask is the service manager at the ford dealership suggested that same issue.

Well, if the headgasket is blown, where would the compression escape to? Usually, the cooling passages are the closest place for the pressure to go.

Degas cap is rated around 16psi. The diesel compression is over 400psi.

Can the dealership check this by a cylinder compression test?
