EGR or Head Gasket
1st time posting here!
I have a 2004 F350 Lariat 6.0 w/113k miles.
Last week I drove from house to doctors appt. about 8 miles, and had white smoke bellowing out from exaust! On last 1/4 mile the temp pegged out. I turned it off & let it set for 6 hours to cool. I put 2 gallons antifreeze and 2 qt. oil and then it started and ran fine. I drove it around town for one week, no problems at all. Yesterday I started to go to work and the same thing happened, it was VERY
hard to start but when it did, it smoked like a chimeny. I turned it off and checked it in the evening, same thing 2 gallons low. I called the dealer in montana were I bought it, they said they replaced the EGR cooler in 05.
Could this be the same thing again? or the head gasket?
i have no warranty because of 113k miles. PLEASE HELP!!!
btw... the truck is pure stock, no add ons.
