Losing Coolant??

When i push my truck real hard i smell coolant coming through the AC vents and when i let off the gas i hear a whistle-like sound(its not turbo whine). Have I blown a head gasket or is this egr cooler related??

You already have something bad going on. lol You need to get it fixed ASAP.

I would suggest getting ARP head studs and getting the heads decked and magnafluxed.
