Might have problom starting with 6.0

I have a 2004 6.0. The coolant resevoir over flows out the cap if I fill it up to the min. line. I have to keep it about an inch or two below that or it blows out the cap. Put a new cap on thats not the problom. No smell of coolant in the exhaust pipe. Is this signs of a head gaasket problom.

Sounds like it to me, Or you are flash boiling you coolent in the egr cooler. I would block the Egr and get some studs put in. What does the temp gauge show? does it run hot? Look in your resavoir and see if there is alot of black carbon, if there is then that is a tale tale sign of head gasket faliure.

Cool

I have a blown head gasket and two bad injectors. The dealer wants $5000 to fix. If I have them use all ford parts to repair it I will get a 1 year warrenty on it. I don't know if I should get the same crappy head studs or should I get the ARP ones and screw the warrenty. What do you think.

5gs? i would laugh at him and walk away..find a new dealer..some1 will do the work under warranty if you still have it. or you could pay someone WAY less then that to have the work done..i also heard about the cap leaking but since you replaced that then its not that. you have either a bad egr cooler or blown headgaskets, or even both. thats what i had, a bad egr cooler, blown headgaskets, and 2 bad injectors.

There was also a TSB for these trucks that said the line on the degas bottle was too high. They are suppose to put a sticker on it that lowers the coolant level in the degas bottle.

Any advice on getting arp head studs or the stock ones. I get a warrenty with the stock no warrenty on ARP. Would I be able to run my programmer with the ARP with no probloms.
