I just lifted my 06 F250 6.0L and put 38s on and i had to take about 100 mile trip back home and ever since i got it home it has been leaking coolant when it gets hot and has a bad burning coolant smell. It also make a sound like when a car sets for a while and you start it up and get on it with out letting it warm up, like an open compresser letting out alot of air kinda.
Anyone have this problem.

Sounds like your truck has puked. Check around the degass bottle for white residue or other signs of puking. Might need a new degass cap.

Replace the cap its only couple bucks see what happens then, if you hear rush or air or such could be a cracked y-pipe, smell in the truck could also be bad heater core.

So took it into ford this morning and so far they found a leak in the bottom of the degas bottle, he is replacing it and then pressure testing it to see if the head gaskets are bad.
