6.0 coolant loss issue

About 3 weeks ago pulled into a buddies driveway and my bus started dumping coolant about 1/2 gallon ! Did some inspecting and it seemed to b coming from upper radiator hose and since I had just changed thermostat a week prior thought hose might b bad ! Replaced hose and yesterday and this morning did it again @$!# !! So I cant really tell where its coming from but its running down the power steering pump !! So I am guessing either water pump or I screwed the o ring up in thermostat housing !! Since my truck hardly ever reaches the 192 degrees that it takes to even open thermostat I am guessing that might b the culprit !! Any ideas ??? Puzzled cause it took it 3 weeks to do it a second time !!

I had a similar issue a while back. Make sure you check the clamps on the hoses from when you did the thermostat. Possibly take them off and clean the surface of the hose, as if it was not tight it starts to grow crud on there.

Is it only doing it when up to operating temps, after a long run??? I had a cracked degas bottle that would leak only when up to full temp. I hope this helps.
