ALL 6.4 AND 6.0 OWNERS NEED TO WATCH THIS!!!!!

I was real skeptical of his seriousness and of his confidence,,, until i tested my cap from my 08'. Well mine wouldn't hold ANYTHING!!! And I have not really had any coolant loss or temperature issues until i loaded up my 275 tune the other day and puked only a quart or two..
This guy is really on to somthing!

I watched the same video and changed mine out as well. Easy cheap and 1 less thing to think about.

Id like to see some others actually test their old caps as well. To help verify this, as of now, theory.

Tsgs69400, I wouldn't quite make it a theory, I've definitely heard of this, Ford did update there cap but, for all those that never got one,it maybe an issue, I'm waiting for mine to cool off now to check it

coolant cap failure is a big deal for your cooling system. we spend a lot of time testing and changing caps at work when developing a new cooling package.

I just replaced my degas and cap today, bottle was starting to crack. I'll test my old cap when I get to the shop in the morning and let you know. Oh, I didn't have any puking but I've only pulled 5,000 lb. so far.

That guy is a joke and advanced caps are noted for having problems. We have worked on a few of his trucks at a buddies shop that he had got done doing heads on less then 6 months before. Just my .02 but stick with factory parts no matter how minor they seem except for stuff like studs and upgrades.
