could be EGR and/or oil cooler as well... Hard to guess on the internet, but if it's not HG's, I'd bet its one of the others.

probably egr cooler 1st. Head gaskets will usually cause an overheat. Not always, but most times.

yes, the cooler itself cracks and you loose it out the exhaust. Also a lot of the time the oil cooler goes out and takes the EGR cooler with it.

Kettle whistle will almost definitely be HG's and would be worse under a load.

For the OP, I agree about the egr cooler.
