EGR cooler, head gasket, or something else?

I am looking at an 03 Superduty with a 6.0 with around 120K miles. The owner says that it heats up when running hard, and has noticed coolant loss. I am assuming that it has a bad EGR cooler, or possibly a bad head gasket. Does anyone know of any other problems that could cause this? If it could be something worse than the EGR cooler, or head gaskets, I think I'll avoid being the next owner.

regardless of what it is, unless it's a killer deal, I would look for another one.
