Unhappy Degas Bottle Cap pops with Spartan 275

I noticed while running my Spartan 275 tune with DPF/DOC delete and AFE stage 2 cold air, that the degas cap pops and blows coolant everywhere under hard accelerations. But the 250 tune does not cause this issue at all. Any ideas besides getting a new cap, I tried new aftermarket and factory caps. Thanks

I still have the egr coolers. I have heard before that it may be the headgaskets, if that's the case, i will stick to the 250 tune as I have no problems with it. I wish there was an easier way of checking headgaskets other than removing the cab and taking off the heads.

It also could be your egr coolers. Might be worth the investment to delete them. Also you can buy a blok check to theck if there is combustion gasses in the coolant or pressure check the coolant system. This will tell you if you have a blown headgasket.

Do you recommend any specific block off plates? And any specific block check to use or it doesn't matter? Thanks

I believe you can get the blok check at any auto parts store. Check out performance truck products. They have several options

Also pressure test ur degas cap. I had the upgraded cap from ford and it still wouldn't hold 16 psi. Went and bought a $5 Stanton cap from advanced auto and it tested perfect. Worth a try....

Not being rude, but if you're building more than 16psi at ANY time, something is wrong. Napa sells block check ( clear bottle, purple contents). White smoke is a good indicator of EGR problems. If not, it's head gaskets. If you wait, you'll be sorry.. Eventually, its gonna hydro lock. Crack your heads and you'll see an EASY $6500 repair bill. I charge $7000 for new heads, gaskets, studs, EGR delete, and labor. Fix it while you still can avoid major damage..
