2004 f-250 6.0l 4x4 75000 miles and white smoke is pouring out the exhaust...i know its coolant. Blown head gasket I presume. Called one place and they quoted me $3500. I think that is ridiculous, not to mention the fact that I just bought this truck 2 months ago and I have only put five thousand miles on it.
Before I buy head studs could this be something other than head gaskets? Someone shine some light on me...
