6L F350 smoking, overheating ..
My '06 recently started to smoke like crazy, mainly when accelerating, smokes much less when I let off. Also overheating within 10 minutes of driving and the smoke reeks like coolant. The truck loses power frequently, before reaching the overheating stage. Smoke color varies between thick white, dark blue and sometimes a little black. It also seems to be doing a messed up jerking motion , almost like a sh1tty manual transmission operator. And not while losing power either, seems more like a tranny feeling.
Unfortunately, all 8 ford dealers in our city have a wait time of 4 - 6 weeks even for a diag.
The truck has coverage under an extended Ford warranty until Dec 2009 or another 79,000KM. The truck currently has 61,000km on it.
I read numerous posts regarding issues like i mentioned but failed to see one with all issues combined.
