Coolant Resevor

I have a 2004 F250 6.0. I have alot of pressure from the engine blowing coolant out of my resevor? Resevor and cap are good, don't understand what is happening. Would a sign of the head gasket be going?

6.0's are know for head gasket problems and when thay go it puts compression in the rad. I had a '04 and it did this to me 2 times. I'm under the impression that the head bolts will streach and this will cause the head gasket to blow. One of my friends is the diesel tech at a Ford dealer and he has said the 6.0's are pushed to far and the weak link is the head gaskets. (wish he could figure out my starting problem)So with that in mind I kept my old '99 not the powerhouse of a 6.0 but more dependable

I just spent $285.00 of my own money to replace my EGR w/a brand new one that Ford refused to replace because their computer would not tell them that there was something wrong with it. I would be driving along and my truck would just die for no reason. It would jump into high idle and then go dow to 250 RPM and then just die. I started at the bottom w/Ford w/the same dealer. 1st a Ford Ranger, 2nd a F150 now my 6.0. This will be the last Ford I ever own.:fawkdance: If you notice I'm very pissed off.

What became of the pressure problem in the coolant reservior
F.Y.I. I have had several go arounds with ford, I like the trucks but Ford doesn't care to much about it's customers with problems. I have had new Chevy Tahoe's for years and I must say that when I have had problems over the years GM was much easier to deal with
I currenlty have a 2007 Tahoe LTZ and 1999 GMC Suburban (6.5 Diesel) in addition to my super duty (I'm not nuts, I have a used car dealership and have attached myself to a couple of lot cars, Don't know why I find the need to buy a new Tahoe ever couple of years tho)

More than likely a sign of a bad EGR cooler and not HG's since you don't have overheating problems and a ton of white smoke.
