If it is not leaking anti freeze, but loosing it...and you can smell it and its smoking white(antifreeze)?

I think its probably your head gasket.

I also think that a common problem with a 6.0's? a lot of people say put arp headstuds ect in them for preventative maintenance so the headgaskets dont blow.

Not sure what your looking at for a fix, but my guess is it might be pricey?

hope you figure it out!

you're in the same boat as me almost, except i shut mine off before it overheated. most likely oil cooler, egr cooler, and headgaskets. not a cheap job to do. If its still running, i suggest drive it into a tree head on, make sure u put your seatbelt on and make sure you paid your insurance bill first!

That would be a choice but I think that would hurt. If it's running, shut it off before it gets any worse. It does sound like head gaskets. Check to see if any antifreeze is left or if there's oil in it. It may just be a ruptured EGR cooler and the head gaskets could be fine but you would have to be very lucky. First thing to go is oil cooler then EGR cooler then coolant gets in the intake and lifts the heads. I'm sure others will chime in with more info. Also list a little more about the truck, like modifications, any kind of temperature monitoring, etc. It will help.
