Smells like antifreeze

I just got it out of the shop drove 2000 miles and now I'm smelling antifreeze
when I stop through the ac and when I get out of the truck. Any one know what that's from?

?

Is your truck a 2003 or early 2004? Pop the hood and see first if you are pushing coolant out of the over flow jug but my guess would be the little hose that connects the egr cooler to the oil cooler is leaking.

Yep, i think that was the orange hose that is replaced with a blue one IIRC. Usually those leak enough to drip on the ground though.

Nothing egr related. I had alot of work done in the last 30,000 miles. All new injectors, at 90,000 miles. New bd turbo, with bd power elbow, bd bypass oil filter, and BG egr flush kit @ 110,000 miles. I've got 137,000 miles now and I took it in 2 months ago
because the turbo was getting extremely hot. There was a slice in the rubber from the intake at the turbo and they said that was it. It was also running pretty rough when I took it in. They said I might need a couple new injectors.
