Got a 2002 7.3 that has a bit of a issue I’ve noticed since the weather has gotten warmer which is just a tiny amount of coolant coming out of the cap, doesn’t pool anywhere but you can clearly tell that there is a white streak coming down off the bottle, my coolant level seems to fluctuate ever since I replaced the bottle, sometimes it’s right at the max when cold and then when hot it is nearly at the cap, no bubbles in the coolant, no diesel or oil in coolant, engine oil is clean, runs great, not unusual smoking, Just concerned it’s in a cracked cup or good forbid a head gasket? On a 7.3? Surely not but who knows, any ideas? Going to replace the cap tomorrow and see what that does, could it be just overfilled? 285,000 miles
