White smoke at start up and acceleration

Okay, I know I've seen something on here about this before. Relatively new to the site. 2004 6.0 108K miles, 4" lift with 35's. I have had the egr valve replaced 4 times now, and I believe that this is what may be going on again. I went out and started my truck this morning and it blew a large ploom of white smoke. As it was warming up, it continued with the white smoke. When I went to get in the truck, it seemed to have stopped, however when I was heading down the road, I noticed a consistant white smoke coming from my exhaust. So I had an edge programmer, until it got stolen. Another ?, would the shop (ford) have changed my programming when they changed out the egr, egr cooler, turbo boot, and oil cooler? I'm not even certain of that. Thanks in advance

Coolant smell=EGR cooler

Diesel smell= injector

White smoke is generally the result of coolant getting into the combustion chamber. How is your coolant level? Is there any milky look to your oil?

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

I also have a 2004 F250 4x4 6.0 with 159k. When purchased 2 months ago truck had ARP headstuds and a 5" turbo to tip exhaust. I bought SCT Livewire to keep track of my vitals (tunes are nice also) and an S&Bcold air intake. Notice coolant temp range from 184-190 and oil temp at 220-243 and got concerned. Truck did not smoke at all. I bought an oil cooler a complete egr delete kit and a coolant filtration kit and had a certified Ford diesel tech install everything as well as rebuild the Garrett turbo. 2 days after installing all this truck white smokes on acceleration. Haven't done smell test yet. What can it be?

Pull the egr valve yourself and see if it's wet... If it is your egr cooler was starved of coolant because of a clogging or clogged oil cooler.

You need to monitor your engine oil temp and engine coolant temp when fully warmed up. Odds are the difference is more then 15 degrees. If you google balloon test for your coolant reservoir tank it will give you a good indicator on your head gaskets. Are you loosing any coolant?
