Unhappy COOLANT PROB

had my radiator w/hoses degas bottle with hose replaced from the dealer, got it back and was going WOT, pulled and degas bottle was empty and coolant everywhere!!!!!
took it right back to dealer 30mins later and was told my fan clutch was bad and it was causing the other cooling parts to work harder, therefore my coolant pressurised and went everywhere, the shop foreman came out and talked to me and he loosened the degas bottle cap and let the pressure out once he did that the coolant started to bubble up and refill up my degas bottle..????
i had just had my fan clutch replaced 8/2013 for they went ahead and replaced it for me again under previous warranty.
But since i've had it back i'll drive around for awhile, pop my hood and notice my degas bottle low, until i loosen the cap and let the pressure out than starts to bubble up and fills my bottle back up, also kind of noticeing some limpness to the truck???

SO MY QUESTION IS, WHY IS IT STILL DOING THIS???? I WAS ALSO TOLD BY THE FOREMAN IT COULD BE AIR IN THE HOSES/LINES... :dunno :dunno
i called the service rep who helped me, on sat and left a msg but hasnt gotten back to me...
HELLLLLPPP!!!!

How far have you driven since degas bottle and stuff was replaced? It'll take a few miles to bleed air out of system and you'll have to add coolant as air bleeds out.

mine does the exact same thing. im deleted and have egr block off plates. the coolant would return to the degas bottle only after i blocked off the egr. before, when it was stock it wouldnt come back. i havent had any cooling problems towing or performance issues though. the degas is also pressurized when i unscrew the cap. ive searched and searched and havent been able to find an answer to it.

The system is supposed to be pressurized i thought? If coolant was everywhere after driving maybe coolant cap is bad?

Try replacing it. But keep in mind your truck might start leaking at the radiator if hasnt already my rad did.

check this out i saw it a while back.

Something dosent seem right, I have never noticed mine moving much. Maybe a couple inches or so on the side of the bottle. Are you sure it's full? How old is your cap?

I would go to auto value or napa and get a new cap that dosent click when you tighten it that has the big spring in it. (Stant or balkamp) And I would fill it up and drive it nice for a while and see what happens.

^^ what he said. And like i said my radiator started leaking right after might want to keep an eye on that. especially if you are using caterpillar coolant like i am, it gets expensive after a while. I preordered the Alradco Radiator coming out.
