Thumbs down A ton of white smoke!!

I have a 2000 F250 7.3 and I have a ton of white smoke coming from the exhaust. I'm not making oil and the coolant is clean. I have replaced the CPS, starter solenoid, and put in a new battery. I believe it is a stuck open injector, but I'm not sure how to test for which one it is without bringing it to the dealership. Any tips?

Is it doing it when you start up and then going away after it warms up, or is it always smoking.

Did you replace both batteries or just one? In these trucks your suppose to replace both, even if one tests ok.

It's always smoking. It started as soon as I took it off cruise control on a 490 mile drive. I replaced one because the previous owner had just replaced the other one.

This is my first diesel also so I don't know that much about them. Anyway I can test to find out which one without pulling each one? How could I test for a bad nozzle?

I don't think it is a stuck open injector. That would cause a darker smoke like it would be running rich.

It could be a injector oring

Any check engine lights

No check engine light. I have used a scanner from advanced autoparts and there were no codes.
