  1. Degas leak

    General 6.0L Discussion
    Last week I bought an 03 6.0 and I’ve noticed since then that there is coolant leaking from the degas bottle. The bottle itself, oil cooler, and egr cooler have all been replaced within the past couple years and I have the paperwork showing it was done. Once I started noticing it leaking I...

    General 6.0L Discussion
    I'm getting ready to flush my coolant system and was wondering.....I had a guy on here tell me to fill my engine up after draining all plugs with liquid cascade detergent and run to temp with that. My question is do I have to run the cascade or could I use Dawn detergent instead? :doh:

  10. Degas Bottle Cap pops with Spartan 275

    6.4L Problems Forum
    I noticed while running my Spartan 275 tune with DPF/DOC delete and AFE stage 2 cold air, that the degas cap pops and blows coolant everywhere under hard accelerations. But the 250 tune does not cause this issue at all. Any ideas besides getting a new cap, I tried new aftermarket and factory...

    Well here is the problem. I just installed a looney tune from Vivian, and when I WOT for a while I start to smell coolant. Now it is not a lot just sprinkles (wet around cap and on air intake hose). So could this be a faulty cap or is it something worse. I never had this happen till now. EGR...
