frown White Smoke from 6.0 Diesel

Purchased 03 6.0 Diesel F250 with 22,000 mi on it. Ran great at first, but am noticing white smoke at startup and continuing intermittently for several miles. Still have the factory warranty, but hate dealing with the service departments.

Re: White Smoke from 6.0 Diesel

In my experience white smoke is deffinately water in the fuel,i would change were you buy your fuel after you have run your tank dry.

Re: White Smoke from 6.0 Diesel

we have trucks, and for a lot of models they blow a little bit of white smoke on start up as the fuel management system is sorting itself out. no drama with them. may continue to blow a little as engine warms up and continues to adjust fuel amounts and mixtures. other than that burns clean when warm. i know we're talking about an engine half the size, but i'd expect they'd have similar principles.

Re: White Smoke from 6.0 Diesel

The 6.0 is very sensitive to fuel quality(cetane).I find alot of carboned up EGR valves,due to this.Use an additive to boast up cetane rating.Stanadyne works very well.

Re: White Smoke from 6.0 Diesel

Do You Have To Pull Turbo And/or Intake To Replace The Egr Valve? Also I Am Getting Oil In My Coolant But Cant Find Any Coolant In My Oil. Could The Egr Valve Cause This?
