No heat and puking coolant again.

Ok so back ground first back in February I did a HG job and ARP studs on my truck at the time I also did the egr delete everything is has been awesome besides doing a stage 2 Warren diesel trans in July. So the weather changed and now I don't have heat checked the level added coolant no heat and then It puked some out. So I added coolant again and sometimes I get heat at around 2000 rpm but it runs out, I added coolant again and it puked again. I also noticed that the passenger side of my radiator at the top is not getting coolant because it is cold at the top guessing a big air pocket. Also when the temperature dropped I noticed white smoke during start up that clears up. I'm worried that I may have cracked head or heads on the engine. There is no coolant in the oil but a mild film inside the degas bottle. Any ideas out there.

When you replaced the coolant did you use something like this?

Well maybe get a BlackStone report to see if it's in the oil but wondering if your heater core is plugged but to be honest sounds like this:


Blackstone report:

Also when the temperature dropped I noticed white smoke during start up that clears up

= "This is actually normal but on a warm day and the truck is warm and this happens, that is not normal"


I also noticed that the passenger side of my radiator at the top is not getting coolant because it is cold at the top guessing a big air pocket

= "Get it up to temp like drive around for 30 minutes. Pop the hood and wait about 10 minutes. The rad should be hot where you are talking about. If not then your rad might be plugged"

So either a plug or you have a leak and to be honest I'm betting heads, hopefully from another failure of the gasket and not the heads.
Sorry.

That's what I meant it is never hot up on the top passenger side of the radiator ever, I can check it after driving around all day and it is not hot but the opposite side is. I thought maybe it was cavitating but that does not explain the puking out of the degas bottle. I can only assume 2 things on the radiator it is plugged at the top of the passenger side or some how now there is a giant air bubble there.
