Worried??

I have an 2008 Job 1 6.4 running the Spartan 300. 94K miles with no problems. New radiator and hoses at 90K. Last week my wife calls me at work and says she thinks somebody has broken into our house. So doing what anybody would do I got home as fast as I could-Thank God nobody had broken in. Anyway after 12 miles of "Way to Fast" it was steaming when I shut it off. No temperature problems just about a 1/2 gallon of antifreeze blown out of the degas bottle. I filled it back up and have not seen any problems driving normal. Is there anything I should be concerned about or checking?

Alot of the time puking out the degas bottle means blown head gaskets however it could just be a bad degas bottle cap as well. I would try the cap first.

When I puked the first time I put the stant cap on. That cap holds way to much pressure I guess because I didn't puke out the cap anymore instead it blew out the side of the radiator so now not only do I need a stud job but also a new radiator. Smh

I love this site but sometimes it is a double edged sword. I become paranoid because of things like this.

Could be the degas bottle cap or like mine, it could be lifting a head. Drive it like normal its fine but under high boost it lifts the head and pressurizes the coolant system hence the puking.
