Need help ASAP!!!

Anyone in north jersey that can give me a hand to see if I blew my head gaskets today... I was running my performance tune and blew coolant out my degas bottle. Anyone have the kit to check if I blew my gaskets or stretched my studs?????

Two most common issues are EGR and blown gaskets. Other symptoms of blown head gaskets include bubbles in your degas, increase coolant system pressure with engine load, loss of heat (highest point in cooling system gets filled with air).

Of course, it could be something simple like a weak coolant cap...

Yea me and Sean confirmed that they are NOT blown currently. My dealtas are between 8-10 at about 63 on the highway. I pulled the degas bottle cap when I got back from the highway and I didn't get the POP "that means the gaskets are shot"... Also I don't have bubbles in my degas bottle. So I don't think they're blown. I don't think I stretched my studs. But I think gaskets are due in the future...

I agree I don't think they are shot sounds more like a small leak

Have you pressure checked the cooling system to set all worry aside? I would verify coolant pressure with the truck loaded or under as much load as possible. Although my truck has OEM gaskets and ARP studs, I do have a minor head gasket leak that can be seen by the coolant pressure gauge. Cab gets lifted next week...
