Exclamation White smoke pouring from exhaust 6.4 liter

I'm new to this and to diesels but I have a 08 f250 with the 6.4 with 63,000 miles the past couple weeks it's been blowing white smoke occasionally for about 10-20 seconds then it stops it's mostly on take off but not all the time but it does it every time I run the truck I only have a 10 mile commute to work and 10 miles back home that's how it's ran most of the time I was told it is the regen cycle but it doesn't always say "cleaning exhaust filter" (or i dont notice) and I would think in two weeks it would be done doing that but I'm no expert and the truck is completely stock but any advise would be appreciated thanks

DPF may be clogged. Try taking it out for a longer drive sometime see if that helps. If not have a manual regen performed at the dealership if you dont have access to IDS

are you losing any coolant? check your level, this maybe another cause coolant getting in your fuel could be white smoke out the exhaust

08 F350 with 68k ..mine just started doing it . i drive 95% highway driving but the little bit of in town driving i do. When i take off from a dead stop i cover the entire street in white smoke..does it worse when its damp or raining though ?? ford says its normal but i doubt it and i know mine does it when its not in regen cause i get my regens on the high way all the time

Oooo unfortunately the egr valves dont come out as easy as a 6.0s, I would remove it, see if the intake is wet with like a black muddy substance. It would show bad egr cooler(s) typically the horizontal cooler fails. Compared to some of the other things to do on these engines a horizontal cooler is fairly easy (to me) just a matter of removing the left inner fender well few 13mm nuts, and hoses.
And i always remove egr valves with an air hammer. thats the only way i have successfully removed them without damaging the intake manifold. The more appropriate way to check for a leaking cooler is to see if there is a stain inbetween the exhaust to horizontal cooler, and where the horizontal and vertical cooler meet. usually coolant will weep out at these points.
