Didn't the puke bottle debut in the 2000 model year? I was thinking thermostat maybe. I have had this happen in some tractors with 12 valve Cummins(5.9's and 6.7's) They start to run hotter than normal but never reach the red zone. Replaced the t-stat and returned to normal. On my truck it failed the other way, the truck never warmed up on my drive home work on a 85 degree day only reached 160.

Hey Mike, was there ever a TSB to get rid of the bottle? I bought my 98.5 From an elderly man (died at 86 and his son sold me the truck). He bought the truck new and had all the maintenance and repairs done at the dealer. Like I mentioned above, mine simply had a section of hose coming out of the breather.
