08 6.4L smoke when engine hot and loss of power
My 2008 6.4L f350 (75K miles) just started blowing lots of white smoke when the temperature gauge is midway (engine hot). Then the truck starts acting strangely with power loss, strange noise from turbo after letting off the gas. Strange thing is it only blows the smoke out for a few seconds then done. It does this every time I drive it now so it cant be regen every time.
So here are the facts:
I put a can of Seafoam in the fuel tank and on the next tank of fuel is when I started having problems.
I am not getting a check engine light. (I think that is odd)
Engine runs good until temp gets midway (engine is hot)
Live in Western PA so it is Fall here cool temps, low humidity.
Coolant reserve is full and have been checking (when the truck is cold) daily.
I am planning to take to the dealer this week but I am out of warranty. I was hoping someone has seen this or at least console me for the anticipated repair bill.
