gray smoke w/ loss of power upon deceleration

Hi Folks!! 2005 f250 powerstroke-- 107k miles.. started this weird symptom of losing power and creating light gray smoke coming off the ramp. If I baby it on neutral, it'll recover. What is it??

Start by cleaning the EGR valve.

The smoke comes from the coolant being burnt or thats what I think. The EGR valve is located on the intake manifold.

It was the EGR.. ordered the o-ring kit yesterday and fixed it last night. YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME! Had to "yank" on it quite a bit being that it has 107k miles and I believe this is the 1st time it was done. Soaked it in some "solvent" for about 30 mins...Major angioplasty in my opinion. It was caked on there pretty thick! I attached a 1/2 PVC tubing at the end of my shopvac and vac'ed away in the EGR hole. Ran beautifully this morning! THANK YOU!
