blown head gasket?

I have a e99 f350 6 speed 4x4 cet cab short bed. When i start no matter how cold it is it dumps white smoke. even if the motor is warm. It smells sweet like its burning coolant. When i drive it all the smoke clears up except for a little white.and black ofcorse. Sometimes it runs good and other times it seems like its going into lock down mode where the truck wont run more that 10mph. There is a little coolant loss but not much. I can see where what looks like coolant has ran down the side of the block on the driver side right beside the oil cooler. could the oil cooler orings be bad? blown head gasket?

read the codes on it and it said cps replaced it and nothing, and icp sensor unplugged it to see if it cleared up and it didnt.

i need help with this one.
stage1s 180cc split shot
new clutch
replaced all rod bearings and piston rings due to a broken oiler
rebuilt stock turbo

Iv had alot of problems out of this truck and im tired of working on it more than i drive it.

Thanks for the help!!
