New Truck

So I recently bought a 2008 F250 with the 6.4l powerstroke in it. This morning I had about a 100 mile drive back to work and about half way through the drive I floored the truck to pass someone and it felt like the engine died and a ton of white smoke came out of the tailpipe. it did this twice the more smoke the second time than the first. After these two occurences the truck ran fine. It really freaked me out. Any ideas as to what this was?

yeaaa i just bought my first diesel maybe a month ago and mine did that a few times but from what ive researched and what the guys on here have said is that its in the regen cycle. it only flashes the message when it kicks on but you have to run the systems check and it will verify that its in regen mode!! hope that helps and goodluck on the new truck man

Doesn't have anything to do with it being in regen, has more to do with the compressed air cooler. You will find that it will do it more often when you are driving in the rain or the humidity is high. Has to do with condensation in the CAC. There is a TSB on it, took me forever to get my dealership to fix my 08 since it is so hit or miss on doing it that they couldn't get it to do it for them. They replaced my CAC, seemed to correct the problem, but when my 2010 was stock it would do it also. I showed them the TSB on it and it states the problem just like you did.

It wasn't very humid nor was it raining this morning. And i was still kind of asleep but thought I saw a message come across the message center. It only did it twice over about a 10-15 min period when i would go to pass someone. But after that it ran flawlessly, even when accelerating to get on the interstate it didnt smoke or feel like it lost power.
