Not so much of a drip but more of a spray. It will get all over the outside of the degass bottle and a little on the motor as well.

Another warning is if the truck starts to run hot, overheat. This is a tell-tale sign also. It is almost inevitable. You will most likely NEED HG and studs sometime, its just a matter of when. So treat your truck nice, and hopefully you wont have to replace them anytime soon!

when im towing up a long hill my whole engine compartment is sprayed with coolant you know when you see dry water marks everywhere. Im getting head studs and gaskets in the near future. Im just deciding whether to do them myself or pay someone to do it.

PAY SOMEONE!!! The whole cab of the truck will have to be taken off. Its about a 20 hr process, for the skilled and experienced.

Ive seen writeups where the guys have left it on, but from what I understand the job is much easier with it off. I would consider doing it myself if I knew I had a way of getting the cab off. It worl save a ton of money!
