Hey guys. I’m still getting coolant out of my degas. Nothing like before I bulletproofed but still comes out. Here’s a video to show the pressure test. Please give me any feedback that you guys have. It Doesn’t look like a head gasket problem to me, but Why am I still building so much pressure at Idle? It will eventually get 16 again. Thanks in advance.

If you start at zero (open system), connect the gauge, build it to 16 psi, then let it completely cool (like overnight) without breaking the system does the gauge return to zero?

Sorry for the delay! It will drop to 8 psi and stay there.
