Question TINY BUBBLES....TINY BUBBLES...??

No not the song.....

I was checking my engine yesterday...just listening and looking things over. I noticed small bubbles going into the degas bottle. Nothing major but they were constant. I have researched PS.org and noticed this could be the symptom for a bad head gasket or oil cooler. My question: Is a small amount of bubbling normal or should there be absolutely no bubbles feeding back to the degas bottle?? Many Thanks.

Since you have an egr delete there is a good chance it is your head gaskets. Get some of this Block Chek - Store and check for exhaust gasses in the degass bottle. It'll let you know for sure.

If it's bubbling air is being introduced somewhere.... The most probable cause on the 6.0 are head gaskets or egr cooler but seeing as you deleted yours .....

I thought i read somewhere that if you are using a ELC coolant testing for gases in the coolant dont give correct readings... Is there any truth to this?

Not sure. I would not think an ELC would have any impact on the results. The test is to test for exhaust gases as a result of combustion.

Yes, or the amount of lost coolant could be so small, you wouldn't notice it.
