leaking coolant out of exhaust

pulled out on highway pulling a 19ft camp trailer started to speed up and truck started to make a funny noise. Everytime it made the noise it would puff out a little smoke and loss of power, noise went away and a hissing sound started, that went away and truck ran fine. Got home and noticed the upper intercooler boot was torn. Replaced all four boots and now experiencing white smoke comes and goes and coolant loss even had coolant dripping out of muffler. i'm going to do a egr delete kit and new oil cooler. will this solve the problem. no burping from degas bottle. this is a stock 2004 f250 6.0

It might. If you haven't already planned on it, I'd recommend a coolant flush prior to replacing the oil cooler.

You may want to change the egr cooler while your at it sounds like it is ruptured with coolant comeing out the exhaust.

Check for anti-freeze in your oil. A lot of times when the EGR Cooler goes, it will also blow head gaskets. It doesn't always blow out the degas depending upon how bad the head gasket is.

Thanks for the replies, I haven't dare to drive the truck much, drove about three miles ran fine no smoke, let is set four 3-4 hours went to start it and it smoked alot and oily coolant started to drip out the muffler (small drizzle). coolant level dropping but oil level looks fine. Any suggestions will help alot

You might want to pressure check the cooling system too. I am in the middle of doing the bulletproof stuff to mine now due to bad head gaskets. only symptom was over pressurized cooling system. didnt have any mixing of fluids or any smoke, yet. got the heads off and they were warped and gaskets were clearly leaking.

My advice is that you do not drive the truck until you get it fixed. I wouldn't doubt that the head gaskets are toast due to the coolant running out of the exhaust and your description of the way it stars up after sitting. You are collecting coolant in the cylinder when sitting. You are going to go to start it soon and it is going to hydrolock on you. That could cause all kinds of internal damage and have you looking at a total engine replacement.

Get an engine monitoring system.
