Loosing coolant:/

Got an 05, blew the egr cooler a few years ago so I blocked it, always noticed it loosing a little coolant and had to add a quart a month, bought a cts and notices my oil cooler was getting bad so I bought a oil cooler and actual egr delete, installed that thinking my blocked cooler was leaking, after the new oil cooler and delete it was still leaking and slowly got worse, now I can fill it up, drive 30 mins to work, let it sit all day and have to add almost a gallon. Took it to the lake 2 wks ago, 2hr drive, was fine the whole time, checked it when I got there, still good, checked it 2 hrs later and again a gallon low.. Changed my cap out from 16 to a 10 because it used to spray out of the reservoir but not anymore.. I'm thinking gaskets, when they get warm and I shut the compression off it leaks in the cylinders? But when I start it up in the mornings, no white smoke.. Anyone else experience this? I got the sct on it with a pretty hot tune and it still runs awesome just wondering where this is going

I was readin up on a gasket symptom and it shows exactly what it's doing and they were done by a dealer 6 years go before I bought it and always noticed it leakin just a little bit so i dunno if they were right from day one, but her lately on a hot day the temp will get up to about 216 and go back down and the fan will come on for a little bit and that showed to be another symptom.. Just didn't want to do this task lol, but since I don't have a lift I guess I'll be doing them with the cab on

Just make sure the heads are flat and checked for cracks.
