white/blueish smoke!!! :)

i have a 2005 6.0L powerstroke with 170***miles on it. it is puking water out of the degas. i know i need head studs and egr delete which i am doin asap. i have white or maybe a little blueish smoke coming out and i know this occurs when the head gaskets are gone but it was almost ran out of feul yesterday and seemed to be much worse??? it spits and sputters like its not getting enough fuel. it does it very bad when cold and after it warms up its kind of random. i am wondering if it is only the head gaskets or does it have something to do wit an injector/s or feul pump or something?? im only 19 years old and just hit that january first so my pockets arent but so deep. im lookin at around 3 grand for the studs, egr, and labor and thats killer. i wud hate to have to add injectors to it too.... i just hope its only the gaskets. Is that wat it sounds like to yall? thanks for any help. and if anyone knows of someone in north carolina doin studs and egr delete for under 3 grand please let me know.

Randall

It sounds like you may also be in need of a new FICM.

The coolant in the exhaust is most likely an EGR cooler. Not a huge job to replace. I have not had to replace head gaskets on a VT365 yet, and I've been working on them since release. If you were to get the EGR delete it would defiantly take care of your leaking cooler

i forgot to mention that all i have done to it is mbrp smokers stacks 4" turbo back and a smoke switch. i was gonna get a programmer and all but noticed it was blowin water out on a stock tune so i didnt want to risk blowin the heads off. do yall think if i just do the egr delete it will be fine wit the head bolts or should i not risk it and go all out studs and all? if i turn the smoke switch on and rev it up it blows lotttttts of white smoke and also spits and sputters? im sure it wud be best to go ahead and do studs and delete. let me know wat yall think. thanks for the help so far

Dude, Go with the delete kit. You're cooler is most likely leaking. You DO NOT need head studs. The stock head bolts are fine for your setup. The white smoke and stuttering is because its burning the coolant in your exhaust system. If you keep driving it with the cooler leaking, its only going to get worse and eventually the coolant can leak down into the cylinders causing it to hydro-lock. If you're still worried about a head gasket leak. Remove the pipe off the back of the cooler and check to see if there is coolant coming from the EGR cooler. This will for sure tell you what the problem is. Like I said before, I have never changed a head gasket because of a leak on this engine in the 4 years I've been working on them.
