Degas Bottle on an 04 6.0 leaking?

Ok, so this truck has had nothing but problems ever since we got it. It doesn't start after its warmed up. We have replaced the FICM, batteries, alternator, IPR Valve, and had the turbo cleaned so far (the turbo had stopped working). Still no start when it's hot, and now we are noticing that the degas bottle is leaking all over the place. Could this be why it doesn't want to start when the engine is hot? Or is this another issue entirely? Any help would be appritiated! We took it to a diesel shop and that really got us no help at all. The truck is a 2004 with 190,000 miles on it.

I have not experienced the wont start warm problem in my 04 but I think a few here have perhaps a bump will bring the cavalry. welcome to the org this place has been invaluable for me in trouble shooting any problems that arise with my truck. these guys know more about the 6.0 than most diesel shops combined

Thanks! I'm so frustrated, and I'm tired of it wasting away in the driveway!

Possible internal oil leak? when oil is hot doesnt have enough pressure to fire injectors. there are other posts on this all over the site.
