Losing coolant concern

I just got my coolant flush at the dealership about 2k ago. Since then my degas bottle has dropped about an inch maybe more. Is this possibly just air working its way out? I've always kep an eye on it and prior to the coolant flush it's always stayed in the same thought. I'm hoping it's just air working its way out and not more serious problem. I will be doing a full egr delete in the next 2 months

It's air working its way out most likely. Unless you do a few long highway runs it can be slow to work out.

first place to check is the lower drivers side corner of the radiator. many of these trucks develop a slow leak there.

unless you did an aftermarket radiator you should look there again.

Its extremely common for the coolant level to drop a little after a you drain the radiator or do a flush. I had to add coolant a few times after my flush do to the air in the system like you said. Just add some coolant or distilled water depending on how the dealer did the flush. No worries, just keep an eye on it

mine has been a little low for about 2 months now.. i had some puking problems that was resolved by a new Degas bottle cap. took the truck to lake this weekend towing the boat, everything ran great and all temps stayed in check.. i checked the coolant level this morning and it was alittle lower than it normally is.. i'm gonna get a gallon of the gold coolant today from the ford dealer, i'm not really sure where its going.. its not puking anymore, and there are no visible leaks.. I hope you find out what your issue is!
