NEED ADVICE WHITE SMOKE WITH OIL

I AM PRETTY SURE MY EGR COOLER IS LEAKING IN MY F250 2004. ON START UPS I GET WHITE SMOKE THAT SMELLS LIKE ANTIFREEZE. IT DID THIS A FEW TIMES BUT ON ON THE LAST TRIP THE SMOKE DID NOT CLEAR UP AND WHEN PARKED BLACK MOTOR OIL WAS LEAKING FROM THE MUFFLER. I HAVE PARKED THE TRUCK AND NOW TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO. I LOVE THE TRUCK BUT BASED ON COST ESTIMATES CAN'T AFFORD TO HAVE FORD WORK ON IT. IT'S GOT ABOUT 140,000 MILES ON IT... SO NO WARRANTY.

HERE IS MY PLAN. REMOVE THE EGR COOLER AND VALVE AS DETAILED IN THIS FORUM. WITH SOME HELP FROM YOU GUYS FIGURE OUT THE OIL PROBLEM AND DO WHATEVER REQUIRED TO FIX IT AND ANYTHING ELSE YOU GUYS SAY TO DO TO MAKE THIS TRUCK DEPENDABLE. WHERE CAN YOU GET PROCEDURES AND REASONABLY PRICED PARTS? MY LABOR IS FREE BUT WHAT COST SHOULD I EXPECT FOR PARTS? JUST NEED SOME ADVICE AND A LITTLE ENCORAGEMENT TO HAVE THE GUTS TO TACKLE IT.

THANKS
SKIPJACK

Is this an early-build 2004 (with 2003 engine) or a late-build 2004 (with 2004 engine)? I would be inclined to believe your EGR cooler has failed by your description, so I'm ready to believe it to be a late-build 2004, since I have yet to replace ONE 2003 model year EGR cooler out of the thousands on 2004 to 2007 model year coolers that I have replaced so far.

Look at the data plate on your passenger side valve cover, just behind the oil filler neck (the one with A325). That will identify whether you have a 2003 engine or 2004 engine. Even simpler, would be to look for a three wire sensor beside the GPCM at the front of the passenger side valve cover. This would be the ICP sensor, if yours is equipped with a 2004 engine. If it's not, the sensor is under the turbo at the back of the engine, which identifies it as a 2003 engine.
