Like RWalker says, best to find a tech to help you out, but in the mean time did you pop the hood and see where the white smoke was coming from? I can understand if it was the EGR cooler with white smoke coming out the tail pipe and maybe even the vents in the cab, but don't understand why you had smoke pouring from under the hood. I'd like as much information as you could give. Did the truck do this immediately after startup or was it warmed up first? Did you notice anything on the drive up or prior to this? Anything/everything you can tell us will only help us solve your problems quicker.

I'll bet money that it's the EGR cooler. It has happened to me before.

I have no quick fix. Sounds like the egr cooler. How much coolant have you lost?

Also, did it smell like coolant? Was the truck hot or cold?
