white smoke

I have a 06 f350 with a 6.0l enough said rite but I am trying to get it running.
I took it to the dealer with white smoke and slow at getting up to speed they said it was the egr cooler agian. So i had it towed home to do it my self I ordered a sinster egr cooler kit and i put in a new oil cooler ,egr valve,turbo,and a new battery. Now it starts fine and has power but it is still blowing white smoke like crazy like people swerving out of the way crazy any ideas

Is it using any coolant, or belching it out the overflow? Is the white smoke really smoke or mostly steam? Does it smell sweet like coolant or something else? Is there anything in the tailpipe like oil or coolant? Do you own a ScanGauge II or similar so you can monitor the vitals?

I only ran it for about an hour it does smell sweet like coolant and seemed to go through a little bit it acts like the egr cooler but i just replaced it i have a cheap obd2 but i am not sure what the vitals should be at i pulled the egr valve and it seemed to be dry. the intake is clean i cleaned it when i changed the cooler

Well, white smoke, smells sweet and using coolant. Either your new cooler is bad, or a bad head gasket, or cracked block or head. Only so many ways coolant gets into the exhaust but other than cooler & head gasket I don't know if cracks are common on these or exactly where the occur. Hopefully someone here has more info.
