More 6.0L problems :( head Gasket..?

i have a 04 6.0l f250 diesel.....bought the truck 3 months ago and iv noticed a few times it has sputtered on me like a lose of fuel or air im assuming.... emssion light has came on so i replaced the fuel filters maybe thinking this would help the problem! which after light went off and then 2 weeks later it sputtered on me again(late at night, cold air).. 40 mins after this i turned my truck off to run in and get some beer at a store and then when i started it back up it tons of white smoke poured out of the exhaust so i drove 1.2 miles home and then in the morning i strated the truck and once again tons of white smoke and i noticed a lil liquide driping from the pipe as well.

thx for reading guys

Check the egr valve first, See if there is coolant on it. To do this park the truck on a hill facing down, Pull the valve and see if it is wet. You might just have a bad egr cooler.
After that you can do a degas bottle pressure test to check your head gaskets.

If the EGR valve or down under the EGR valve is wet, the EGT cooler is leaking coolant into the air side of the cooler, and running coolant through the intake into the motor. If you are having drivablity issues, and blowing white smoke there is also a possibility of an injector failure.
