White smoke ???

I think I have a leaking head gasket now for a new months had truck at ford they said the same thing.Truck runs great with a loony tune on it my ect and eot read 194 196 all the time. When I start the truck after setting all night fire it in the morning has light puff white smoke for a second that's it. Went out this morning and cranked it up and it white smoke for a good 2min then clear right up just fine. Its only doing it if it sits all night. This a sign its leaking more then before. Only white smokes setting over night that's it can drive it all day night a sign of it

Does the smoke smell sweet or more acrid and kind of burns the nose and eyes? If sweet then you are burning coolant. And if you are burning coolant then you should be losing coolant in the degas bottle also. If acrid and burns the nose or eyes then probably injector related or possibly even turbo oil seal related.

the truck is losing coolant out of the bottle very slowly I check it onces a week so adding a little once a month. like a mist look not clouds and its very light in color. Only time it will do it is when truck sits over a 10 more hr period of time normal driving nothing at all I can cut it off and back on 20 times it will never do it just only setting over night. I was thinking its my egr due to me still having the factory one still in the truck.

Losing coolant? Then yeah, ouch. You might park the truck over night, nose down on an incline and then pull the EGR valve out in the morning/afternoon after it's sat over night. A leaky EGR cooler can cause the coolant to collect at the EGR valve area. If you pull it out and it's wet down in there then yup, definitely a bad EGR cooler.
