01 7.3L Problem

Hey guys I have an issue with a 2001 7.3L. Here is what is going on, I am having a loss of coolant none externally and there is none in the oil. So this would lead me to believe that it is getting in the cylinders and getting burned, but I am not getting any smoke. I also have a loss of power issue i still have to replace the injector harness on one side I think that will take care of the loss of power, but not the coolant. I think that I might have a blown head gasket. Just looking for some insight on the possibility of that.

Have your pressure cap tested or replace it it's only about $5.00.
This is a common cause of coolant loss.
The 7.3 head gaskets don't fail often.
