Rough Idle

I just moved from San Antonio to Columbus, GA with everything I own behind my truck, Drove straight through. Now That I am here my truck has been idling rough, shakes the whole truck. Much worse when cold, but still there even when driven for awhile. there is alittle white smoke but not much. Any Ideas? Also does anyone know a good Diesel shop in the Columbus area?

No mods. I have not cleaned the egr valve. I can't seem to find anyone here in Columbus who can scan for codes. I can try the Ford Dealership, but I know I am gonna be paying an arm and a leg. I guess thats the cost of getting a diesel, when it breaks your gonna pay an arm and a leg anyways.
