Missing a bit of coolant
OK, guys, I have a question about coolant, the truck is an 07 with only 88k miles. The truck has a few upgrades blue spring kit, coolant filter, oil bypass system, straight exhaust, and few other things you can see in my sig, btw truck never been tuned. Right now there is a power loss but I'm working on it since its injector related.
The only issue is the degas bottle drinks coolant. When I do an oil change I check the coolant level and I have always had to fill it to the proper level when itís down but not much, never seen a leak. I did notice a bit of residue on the degas cap.
I did clean the EGR valve a few years ago and I believe it was a bit wet but back then I didn't know it was supposed to be dry. Will check that again tomorrow and see how it looks. I attached a picture of the degas cap that was replaced a few years ago and probably has less than 15k miles on it.
FWIW, every time I'm in a flat area I check my deltas, last time I did they were about 10 degrees difference if I remember correctly, but that was summer 2017 ago and I haven't used the truck much this past year.
I'm assuming the issue could be either the EGR or head gasket if its the EGR I believe I should be able to tell by looking at the EGR valve, but what about HG?
