Smoking cold start

When I start my truck after being at work all day it throws a puff of black smoke. Or when I drive away and then let off I may get a small hazy puff is this normal i haven't noticed it before I have stacks and no cat or muffler also stock tuning. Any info would be great.

Have you cleaned the egr valve it could be stuck full of soot, carbon do you run any cetane boost in the fuel. If you need help on pulling it these guys can help little raw but

If needed here is the kit

I just bought some Kleen diesel today I put the whole thing in the tank. I know how to clean the egr but the manifold I do not, how would I do that? take it off?? Also where would I order that gasket kit from the ford dealer or someplace else?

When I deleted the EGR I did take off the manifold. Then took it to the u do car wash then cleaned it up there. You can give tousley ford a call and get the gaskets you will need.
