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.

05 F350 CC LB FX4 Lariat, ARP studs, new head gaskets, Barder Stage 2.5 turbo, warren diesel 175/30 injectors, Odawg ported manifold, no limit fab up pipes, S&B cold air intake, sinister coolant filter, BPD water pump, IPR EGR delete, MBRP turbo back exhaust no muffler or kitty, edge insight monitor, tunes from Matt @ geadheads, rancho rs9000xl adjustable shocks .
