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
