overheating and feels sluggish

Truck keeps overheating when run for a little. Does it often for big hills. I know the EGR leaks and I can't seem to keep the coolant from running out. It's also losing power. Doesn't feel as strong as it should. Any ideas whats wrong?

Hopefully it is not your headgasket. Do you have coolant/water in your oil? Do you have exhaust gas blowing out radiator fill cap? I would look for leaks and fix them first. I know you said your egr leaks but I assume your lose of coolant suddenly got worse and your lose of power happened at the same time. Hopefully so more people will jump in and throw some trouble shooting methods out there.

Could be your radiator cap. On a turbo charged engine. If you have a leaking headgasket. You will blow antifreeze out the cap under boost.
