Mmmm...whatever

So I'm driving this morning "truck not fully warmed up yet" and as I turn a corner and give it some gas....this white smoke comes out. I let off the gas and do it again and it white smokes but a little less. Been driving all day now in the city and have not seen it again. I do run 8oz. of Diesel Kleen every fill up and have only had the truck about 1 mo. w/ 116K on the dash. I at first thought it was coolant but it wasn't vapor. My question is "Does the Diesel Kleen work like Sea Foam as to break up carbon build up?" That could be what I saw. Oil pressure is fine and I'm not losing coolant. Hmmmmmm Keep in mind it's all stock.

Radiator and EGR were just replaced by Ford not to long before I bought the truck. No coolant loss and I never got a chance to smell it. It only happened 2 times and it was when I was driving just before the truck was up to temp. Checked the oil and its clean as is the coolant

I'd guess water vapor from condensed water.. no biggie.. those turbo get hot, yo!!! The hotter they get, the more water they will condense whe cooling... water vapor can be surprisingly dense sometimes.. that's my guess, anyway...

Ya if you are not losing coolant i would also guess condensation in the intercooler.

SOMETIMES when truck is cold and the truck decide to start a regen WITHOUT reaching operating temperature you can see some white smoke out of the tail pipe. (the white smoke is unburned diesel) once hot the smoke will go away.
