Cracked EGR Cooler?????

Noticed over the past couple weeks the ol girl would smoke white just at start up, not a huge amount but enough to notice. Friday afternoon while driving it seemed very sluggesh and would pour whiter smoke and hesitate, clean up and be good. I pulled my EGR valve and cleaned it was very dirty, dry hard carbon there only. Drove it home last night and she was smoking white really bad.

Deltas remain normal 3-7 differance.

Survey says heads are good EGR cooler is cracked??

OR

???????

Level sits at min mark. I added some last week to the full mark and it is now back at min mark. I will give it a smell tomorrow.

I am loosing some coolant very little, it smells very much like stinky exhaust not fuel, not sweet. I also have a buzzing noise when my turbo is bossting any amount of psi. I let off it goes away.

Up-pipe and EGR NFG?
