im probably over reacting?

k bought my 08 f250 last week with 100k on it. was a goverment truck so it should have been taking care of maitenence wise. had bad thermostats when i got it. so saturday i did those. pain in the ***. plan on doing an egr delete in a week or too. but i have a leak. looks like it come from the thermostat area and travels down the back of the block then down the engine cradle to the ground. kinda looks like it has a leak coming from corner of the motor. saturday i put my h&s xrt pro on mild 80hp tune and 4 inch exhaust. yes ive played but nothing real hard. runs fine doesnt overheat. cant really tell for 100% that its coming from thermostat area but i assume so because those bolts are a pain in the ***. so just tell me thats what it is and not headgaskets already.

Blown head gaskets would cause puking out the degas/coolant bottle so I would think on the head gasket issue you are ok. could you post a pic of where exactly it's coming from?

If its coming from the thermostat area its probably the upper radiator hose. That is a common problem. Does the upper radiator hose on your truck have the white end?

Well I'm assuming it's my fault. Didn't get the bolts tight enough or something. But it is the old hose style 1 oring. Not white yet

So basically what happens is they get stuck to the plastic from.he heat cycles and when you take it off it rips the oring doesn't it? Causeing a not so great seal because the oring is ripped and warped?
