Truck eats coolant?

So my 6.0 suddenly eats water/coolant.


Its not puking, its not puffing any white smoke... it just eats water/coolant. Oil looks good, not milky at all.


WTF is wrong with my truck now?


Also, about to Stud the motor.

ARP Head Studs...

Which Gaskets? OEM? 18mm Black? 20mm Black?


Who does it the cheapest?

i just got mine done last week. use the stock head gaskets with the arp studs. it hasent puked since. plus it will push a bunch more boost now since its staying where its suppose to. you might check the little blue hose between the oil cooler and egr cooler the will leak and the coolant just evaporates and its hard to find out whats going on. i bet if the egr vavle is dry and the il is good thats where its leaking.

Well I had my EGR flushed out when I had an injector changed.

I dunno, some days I love this truck and some days I hate this truck.
