Well just reading this I would say you have 1 of 2 problems… Either your degas bottle cap is junk or your head gaskets let go. You need to pressure test the cooling system while driving it to see what the system reaches for pressure. EGR coolers don't usually blow coolant out the degas bottle, most of the time when they rupture it burns the coolant and thus you get white smoke out the tailpipe. You should get a monitor to see what kind of condition your oil cooler is in and go from there.

Go on eBay and search obd2 wifi. It's orange with a bit of blue and black. Once u get that, the get OBD fusion for iPhone or torque for android os. Before you pair both devices, make sure you have the wifi icon ON on the iPhone or device. Then plug in OBD sensor to truck. Look at your wifi settings on iPhone and look for one called CLK DEVICE or something to that effect. Make sure it pairs to your phone. Now launch OBD fusion and a notification is gonna come on screen saying that it's connecting. Explore the app and download preset PIDs specifically for ford. I think it's under settings. I'll supply you with pics, but the guages I have on the pics I posted are the main ones you wanna look at. The styling is pretty cool also. You just have to spend some time on itplz be easy on me i am a rookie-image1463022839.787411.jpgplz be easy on me i am a rookie-image1463022851.842523.jpg

It's been pretty reliable for me. I've been using it for a few months. The only issue I had was the trans temp was a tad high, but that's because the formula the app uses to find it, was wrong. I got ahold of the company that made app, and they cleared it right up and gave me the correct formula. If you have any other ??? Let me know bro, I'll try to be as helpful as possible
