White smoke?

Can't figure this out after driving for about 20 mins in traffic my 2007 f250 6.0 starts smoking white while in traffic. It's never done this before I have no power loss , no sounds out of the ordinary, all fluids are full checked the oil and no water in the oil. Coolant is good no oil in the coolant and my coolant filter is good also. All temp levels are at operating range and even my aftermarket gauges are reading normal. No leaks or anything what's going on? Recent problem solvers changed oil,fuel and air filters. Same problems HELP.

White smoke is usually coolant related, though you have said that there is no coolant loss. I can (though less likely) be fuel related.

Any CEL or codes pulled from a scanner?
Pull EGR to check if wet?
Does the exhaust smell like unburnt fuel? Smell like coolant?
Have you done any EGR cooler related work lately?
Turbo Spool OK?

Just some ideas. Let me know.

No codes, egr is deleted, smells like unburnt fuel, I was thinking there was water in the diesel. Turbo spool is good i think, it spools a little faster and is a little louder now that I think about it. You think it could be the turbo I noticed it dumps a lot lately almost everytime I step on the pedal even in traffic. Lmk

from my limited understanding the best check is to smell the exhaust smoke
if it is real acrid it is likely fuel ie turbo not spinning up right , stuck injector, something like that.

IF is smells sweet it is probably coolant ie head gaskets, egr cooler
also pull your egr valve and check for moisture. I also understand it is best to do this with the truck parked from end down.

Looks like OP already mentioned no codes and no egr cooler.

OP, it does sound like a stuck open injector to me as well. The ford dealer has software that they use to isolate each individual injector separately. I think you are correct into having a shop look at it, because they have those monitoring tools and you don't want to just dive in an start throwing money at new injectors. Same goes for the shop, don't just let them throw money at it either. They have software that can tell you exactly what the injector is doing.

Blue smoke (similar to white) indicates an injector issue but is usually only seen at idle.
