White Smoke

My truck is an 09 F250. Has about 63k on it. It has started occasionally bellowing white smoke from the exhaust. Mostly happens when accelerating from a stop. Any suggestions or concerns?

Is the truck stock with the DPF still in place? Have you been loosing any coolant? When this happens has it been on rainy days or high moisture days? When this happens does the truck feel sluggish?

If your truck is stock....You are experiencing a regen and that is normal. If you are deleted, then you have a problem. Check your coolant level and monitor exactly when it happens and how often. Keep in mind if it is head gaskets, EGR failure or another coolant issue it will most likely get worse and happen all the time.

The key here is to find out if your truck is stock or not, then you will be able to better diagnose this issue.

Good luck.

When it happens, check to see if your truck is in regen mode (cleaning exhaust filter). It is the last message when you do a system check.

It probably runs a little sluggish at the same time. If it's in regen, that's normal. If not, it's time to start looking for other possible causes.

10-4 to that if you are not deleted no problem, you are just regenning, if you are deleted could blown heads my 06 blew the heads and smoked like crazy, then it would heal itself and not do it for awhile....

Unless it's doing it quite frequently or in large, large volumes, I wouldn't worry too much.

It's also prone to doing it on colder days especially when the engine is cold... at least in my experience.

You need to answer the rest of the guys' questions to better help you.

It's stock, ok. Is it in regen when it happens or does it do it everytime you stop&go?

Im not trying to be rude at all, but you can get some answers pretty fast if you just do a simple search with exactly what you titled this thread as. There are a hundred threads exactly like this that can get you started on a diagnosis and most likely get you dialed in on what the problem is. Just trying to help

Guys he is obviously new here, so cut him some slack. Also, he wouldn't be asking this question if he knew about regens in depth. Remember, not everyone is a diesel expert and not everyone is a computer guru. Without questions there would be no forum(s).
