My guess would be head gasket or something similar. I know that when I've had fuel starvation/clogged fuel filter issues, there's been whiteish blueish smoke under load, but not at idle.

Ford has a TSB for this issue:


TSB
06-2-13


* WHITE SMOKE, LACKS POWER, EXHAUST ODOR, SURGES, RUNS ROUGH, OR NO START - 6.0L

Publication Date: January 23, 2006

FORD:
2003-2005 Excursion
2003-2006 F-Super Duty
2004-2006 E-Series

ISSUE:

Some vehicles equipped with a 6.0L DI engine may experience white smoke, lacks power, exhaust odor, surges, runs rough, or no start. These conditions are caused by the injector spool valve sticking internally when cold. The concern is typically evident following a cold start and may last 3-5 minutes or longer as the vehicle warms up.
ACTION:

Diagnose these driveability concerns using the following Service Procedure.

NOTE: IF THE VEHICLE RUNS ROUGH OR HAS A MISFIRE WHEN THE ENGINE IS AT OPERATING TEMPERATURE, DIAGNOSE THOSE CONCERNS BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH THIS TSB.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

NOTE: OIL ADDITIVES THAT INCREASE THE OIL'S VISCOSITY AND POOR MAINTENANCE CAN DELAY COMMANDED INJECTOR SPOOL VALVE RESPONSE. FAILURE TO CHANGE THE OIL ON A REGULAR BASIS AT THE PROPER INTERVAL WILL CAUSE THE INJECTOR SPOOL VALVE TO STICK WHEN COLD.

Refer to the owner's guide for recommended service intervals and oil grade/viscosity. Several oil changes with driving cycles may be required to "flush" the engine of residual additives and/or degraded oil.

NOTE: VEHICLE PERFORMANCE ISSUES RELATED TO FUEL QUALITY, MAINTENANCE AND AFTERMARKET MODIFICATIONS/ADDITIVES ARE NOT COVERED BY FORD MOTOR COMPANY WARRANTY.

Cool RE: 2003 6.0 white smoke

I have an early 2005 F250 SD, that blows out white smoke just about all the time. I have been told it could be one of 3 things. Blown headgaskets, bad EGR cooler or the fact that I use synthetic oil in my truck. That last one could be just an excuse from the one of many Ford dealerships that I have taken it to. I have ordered a set of Hypermax wire ring headgaskets, that I will be having installed just in case it is the headgaskets.


Z
05 F250 SD, 6.0L w/ 6" suspension lift, 37" tires, 18x9 Moto Metal 951 rims, Bullydog PowerPup and Outlook monitor, Yukon 4.56 R&P front&rear, (4) 5150 Bilstein shocks and Bushwacker pocket style flares.

coolant runs thru the EGR cooler so thats where you are getting the white smoke from burning coolant!

I've got an 03 6.0L and was having the same problem. White smoke pouring out of my exhaust. Everyone seemed to think it was the EGR Cooler, so I replaced it and my oil cooler, then my EGR valve. After that $2000 was spent, I learned it was an injector leaking and got to spend another $300.

take your egr valve out its right behind your intake elbow two bolts and a little careful prying . if the bottom of the valve is wet its the cooler . look at your coolant if your coolant is disappearing this is also egr cooler . if you have a blown head gasket then your coolant will look like crap with oil and possibly fuel in it . as your cylinder pressure is higher than your water pressure it pushes out not sucking it in . if its a injector you should get a code for that cylinder . hope it helps good luck
