Cracked head ?

If one of heads is cracked causing coolant loss. Wouldn't coolant be getting in to oil right?

Totally depends on the location of the crack.

Would my eot/ect deltas say in check under 15* with cracked head. Truck runs great under normal driving conditions. Noticed overheating when pulling trailer up a grade. Headgasket job done last feb. Add arp studs repair shop said heads where sent to be check then. Losing patience with shop doing repairs. Only up side is if it is cracked head it will be under extended warranty.

Is your degas bottle venting when it overheats. If the shop didn't deck the heads I'll bet you have a bad gasket because even brand new heads IMO need to be decked. Hook up a temporary gauge to your degas bottle and see if the pressure climbs fast under load. What does your coolant look like?

Shop pressure tested cooling system to 30 pounds for more than 24 hours no loss of pressure. When i open degas cap it releases pressure and there is no puking. Coolant when full two weeks ago looked yellowish. Don't know now truck been at shop for a week now.

May not leak when cold but does when up to temperature. With your EGR delete is the cooler removed or welded up, another possible leak source. As for overheating do you still have your EGR valve electrically connected? Some software versions will not let the PCM fully engage the fan clutch along with not doing the vane stroke at startup.
