2003.5 F-350 6.0 Pouring White Smoke
Yeah I'm one of those lucky bastards who picked up a 2003 diesel not long after they came out.
So Monday I was driving to town, hit the throttle noticed a some black smoke. Didn't think much of it. Didn't happen again for the rest of the 25 minute drive.
Went to town had supper, started the truck no problem, moved it from the back parking lot to the front to pick up some buddies. Noticed a little bit of white smoke, figured it was from the truck being cold. Ran to a convenience store for smokes and when I was had it parked i noticed A LOT coming out when I was idling, it wasn't just coming out and disappearing it was hanging. I was parked for 5 minutes and it formed a good trail of smoke. Parked it for a bit then went to start it up but battery was dead(It was parked for maybe 10 minutes I think one of the batteries is no good.) Drove it home and if I idled or hit the throttle it would really smoke. If I was doing highway speed there was next to no smoke.
There has been no loss of power, starts hard though. I checked the coolant and it's not even below the minimum line.
My biggest concern is am i going to destroy something if I keep driving it? It has been parked for 2 days and I've been driving my Chev, want to get back driving the diesel. We have done injectors before, but when the injectors went there was a huge loss in power. Truck is totally stock not even egr deletes or head bolts done.
There is no engine light on either.

Reason: Added lack of engine light.
