06 6.0, (light) hazy smoke

I have a 2006 F350 with 265k on the clock. I just purchased this truck around the 263k mark. Ford Oasis shows head gaskets done at 80k, the owner previously changed the oil every 3k.

Up until tonight and even tonight the truck runs flawlessly, no loss of power nothing.

I noticed accelerating up an on ramp, coming from a dead stop and giving it a lot of fuel I notice a quick burst of light sort of hazy smoke. It lasts only a few seconds and is done, those are the only times I can replicate it.

I just had an independent Ford Diesel mechanic plug in and drive my truck. He said the truck was in a good shape, within the 15 degrees at the time of driving it etc

I was given a list of things recommended to do, bullet proof egr, Dummy plugs, hpop fitting kit etc, and if I was feeling frisky studs/gaskets.

Besides all that its still running great, just the quick burst of light hazy white smoke. Now it's dark but the tail light illumination didn't show any hint of blue. No overflow of degas.

I am just wondering if I should keep driving it until I can call my mechanic on Monday. Googling 6.0 white smoke is kind of disheartening

My international work truck smokes, but I've heard 6.0 smoking is bad? Still a noob to the 6.0

I would say no, unless your losing coolant. A diesel with that many miles it may smoke a little when u hit the pedal hard.

I have the same problem seems like. At idle a little white smoke. When I accel from idle I get a puff of white smoke then there is none and I run just fine. Just had my EGR COOL, Oil Cooler replaced and the white smoke still happens at the idle. I have a 2005 F250 6.0 Powerstroke. Still trying to find out if anything is wrong. No coolant loss.

Thank you, I kind of figured that would be the case.

I am running an OBDII scanner to the APP Torque on my phone, monitoring my Coolant/oil is 4 to 6 degrees and holding at around 70mph, the smoke has stopped since the night I posted about it.
