white smoke

I've had my manual 6.0 for awhile and never really paid attention to it but one day i was waiting and i reved the engine and i did not see black smoke i saw white. i was not moving and had the parking brake on. but when i do heavy acceration its only black smoke coming out. is this a issue? or is that the way the engine keeps its self from over revving at idle. im first time diesil owner

i have a bully dog tuner and i notced when its set to no power it blows white smoke and what my thoughts are is when you have a gasser v8 with unequal length shorty heads cyclinders 4 and 8 burn lean so i think when the tuner is set to no power it is running lean. could this be the answer or sound legit enough to be a answer?

didn't notice-it was a mechanic that looked into the issue that told me it had a pin hole in it-i didn't catch onto it right away-wasn't doing much diagnostics myself at that point-wish i had an exact answer

does it do it mostly when the truck is "cold" or all the time?
Mine generally did it regularly when at stops
How many miles? What year? is your truck

sounds like as you build pressure, it's causing the hole/crack to open-i would either delete or upgrade the egr cooler-something to try -unplug the egr valve and see how it acts. i wasn't all into the DIY when mine went but did some further research and it seams to point to the egr cooler being bad i would recommend a delete kit with that many miles-mine went at 60k miles (of coarse i had more strain b/c of plowing every winter and towing a substantial amount-and it wasn't even tuned just runnin stock)
