White smoke/Power loss

I have a 2005 250 powerstroke. I let the truck warm up for about 5 min, once i start driving the truck it puffs plumes of white smoke and has a complete loss of power, it has 85,000 on it, Any ideas?

Maybe its your egr cooler. Mine just went through the same thing. Its letting coolant and water get into your intake down to your combustion chambers then its steamed out through the exhaust hence the white smoke and power loss. Id stop driving the truck because you may have blown a head gasket or lifted a head. Water doesnt compress.

Is it hunting season yet??
