No power and white smoke on 6.0

I have a 2004 F350 all stock with about 197k on the 6.0. The other day I was driving home on the highway and periodically I would lose power for a few seconds and then regain it. Yesterday I drove into town and after about 10 minutes of normal driving I lost power again and it started pumping out white smoke. I couldn't get it to go over 15 mph so its currently parked on a side street in town. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I checked the coolant today and the reservoir was bone dry so it could have been steam. Not that I know what I'm talking about, but from reading other posts I'm guessing my EGR cooler is shot. Will a complete EGR delete take care of my problem or will I have to replace it. Also, I drove for about 5 min with the engine at low rpms (not able to get up to high rpms), could I have blown a head gasket in that much time? Gauges all read normal.

You need to pull your EGR valve an check for moisture in the intake. If there is, there's a good chance it's just a blown EGR cooler. It is possible that you popped a HG, but in my experience, you are probably ok, is the truck never got hot. DO NOT DRIVE THE TRUCK ANYMORE, UNTIL YOU GET THIS FIGURED OUT

Yes, a delete is great (if you don't have emissions laws or inspections where you live), but you need to check the health of your oil cooler. It's the leading cause of ruptured EGR coolers. If you have to do both, and can do the work yourself, you're looking at 7-800 bucks

PS I recommend changing them both out, for times sake
