HELP! Truck quit now bellowing white smoke!

Just a quick history.

2004 F-250 6.0 114k miles! EGR delete, Studs, Gaskets, New oil cooler!

Got it back from headgaskets, studs, egr delete, and oil cooler. Had it back about 2 weeks.

Been running great. This morning while I am getting all my stuff loaded in the truck it feels like it may have a slight miss. But ever so slightly. If I wasn't anal about it you prolly wouldnt notice it.

I get about 3 miles up the road and it starts dying. I manage to coast it off of the road. When I try to crank it it takes a second for oil pressure to come up and when it does it cranks and stumbles all over itself. Then it starts bellowing white smoke. It will run for a minute and then start trying to die.



Where to start? Thanks guys

i would start with your turbo, it sounds like you may have blown it.

Got it loaded on the trailer.

After scanning it. Injector 7 failed test. And it is pouring fuel out of the exhaust pipe!

Need some advice!Just want to confirm that everyone thinks it is an injector before I go to replacing them?

Could it be an injector hold down or an oring?

Just had it all apart 2 weeks ago for studs and gaskets! Did blue spring and 6.4 banjo's!

Sounds like the egr cooler to me! sounds like you took care of everything but that. And if it is you might have to have work done to the turbo charger. I just had everything on mine replaced and it was doing what yours is and it was the egr cooler, than led to the oil cooler and then the turbo.

I believe you are dealing with a bad FICM....Talk to your diesel guy...the one who did your EGR delete....He will most likely know how to test it.....It could be injectors, but i suggest you start with that.....Between the EGR/EGR cooler/EGR delete/Fuel injectors/FICM......damn just give me a carb!!!...

I really think this is your problem though...Good luck. Let me know what you find out.

Yeah we are gonna check it just to be sure! My expereince with a bad FICM is that it will show all injectors failing buzz and contribution test and sometimes the bad FICM code. I am only showing 1 bad injector! But if it is stuck open that is where all my fuel is coming from!

my .02, yes. that much fuel will wash cylinders, be careful and check your oil.
