Re: Head gasket

High pitch Whistle when you let off the accelerator. Water in oil. Fuel in coolant degas bottle
Puking degas bottle. White smoke. While running at normal temp pull the oil cap off see if steam is puffing out. Just a few symptoms

Re: Head gasket

If you still have an egr valve it could be flashing causing a lot of heat at once as long as it's not puking everywhere I wouldn't be to concerned about it
