how many miles, how many mods, does it happen when the truck is worked hard as in towing, or all the time. chances are head gaskets are giving up. have a buddy that did mods and tows 14k to races, every time towing pushed coolant, found fire rings on 4 cyls burnt. truck ran fine. new gaskets and arp stud kit fixed for good so far happened @55k truck now has 162k no more head problems
