I smell anti-freeze

I smelled anti-freeze last year for quite some time. Never paid to much attention to it until my truck blew up and I had to get new Head Gaskets. That was like 3 months ago and it cost me $5000. That sucked!
So I am starting to smell it again, just started today, could it be the Head Gaskets again?

I also have like a tea-kettle sound whistle sometimes, its not the turbo. It happens after the truck is warm and running for awhile and ussually when I am going up hill or start after a redlight or something.

Anybody have any good news about any of this?

Its a 2004 F-250 diesel, 4-wd

are you puking coolant out of the degas bottle? The tea kettle sound is usually a sign of head gaskets.

When I smelled coolant, it ended up being my EGR cooler. Tea kettle is likely your cap needs replacement...
