Is it possible I have too much coolant in the reservoir. I thought I read somewhere that it should be 1in. below the minimum line but right now after I flushed the coolant it has been right on the minimum line.

It absolutely is possible and sounds like very likely. There is an updated decal the degas bottles that set where your fluid should be.

Search for it.

Yhea, looks too high. Coolant level should be about 1/2" below min line.


Also, your running a WIX oil filter and cap, might want to switch to Motorcraft filter and cap or Racor filter and Motorcraft cap.

just over full, your right coolant level is supposed to be about an inch under min. you have an older degas bottle. i would worry about that little residue.

The Min line is now the Max line, Take some out and see how it goes after that. You could always check the psi in your degas bottle to see what it is at.

Like others said, might be too full. Also, might try getting a new cap.

Degas cap (Motorcraft) is new and I am running a Motorcraft oil filter. I am going to remove coolant tomorrow and get it to about an inch under the minimum line.

There's no way that's a Motorcraft filter. It's like 3" higher than it is supposed to be.

But now that you've puked through that cap, I'd replace it, even though it's new. Drain the coolant to an inch below the MIN line, and let her eat

Also, CLEAN THAT DANG ENGINE. You and your engine will thank me later.
