Going to dealer tomorrow-Any tips before I go?

I will try to be short. 2004 F250 6.0, 36,000 miles. Edge juice (because it was $250) and K&N filter was on the truck when I bought it. these are the only mods. the issues I have are:
1. spitting back through intake on hills when i try to keep constant speed and sometimes tons of black smoke/no power when this happens. only symptom I had for a while.
2. recently, I occasionally have loads of blue/grey smoke at idle.
3. losing coolant. drove aroud town a little for 2 days and it lost a little. drove the interstate the other day, about 150 miles went from min mark to no coolant in resevoir, 1.5 gals to get back to min mark.
I have an appointment with the dealer Monday. I will remove the edge and thought about putting on the stock air filter too. Do I need to reset the computer?
any other info ya'll want to throw my way would be appreciated!!

Get hold of some headstuds and try to get the dealer to install them when they replace your headgaskets and leave the K&N off when you get it back

re:

If they say headgaskets, I will definitely push for the studs. I have heard that the K&N leaves a lot to be desired, so I guess I'll put the stock one back on till I can afford an afe or something similar.
Thanks for the reply!!
