leaking coolant/ lack of heat/ low temps

hey guy i was wondering if you can help me out. i have noticed im loosing coolant from the degas cap (updated cap) i have heat that comes and goes. and exhaust or maybe coolant smell in the cab on start up and i was lucky enough to borrow my brothers Dash Daq monitoring system for a few days and my EOT agv around 182 city driving and ECT range from 170-178 delta avg 6-7 degrees but ive seen as higher at WOT. im EGR deleted with an updated oil cooler i did over the summer i just changed my oil and added rev x this time

im praying its not a head gasket issue, i would like to think the thermostat has something to do with it and maybe a heater core issue as well or air in the system

also what are some other thing to monitor and what should the temp/psi/voltage be

i just put 3,000 into a lift and tires i might cry if i have to dish out another 3,000 for studs and hg repair, tuner, oil cooler, coolant, coolant filter

There's 3 things that will cause coolant to puke from the bottle.

1. Blown head gaskets or cracked head
2. Bad egr cooler
3. Serious over heating.

You need to run a coolant pressure test, there's multiple threads posted recently in this section describing how to do the test, what symptoms to look for, and what possible solutions exist.
