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
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?
