Re: White Smoke Please Help

I doubt the different sized exhaust would cause the problem. However, if the exhaust is smaller going to the cat converter, that may be a problem as the O2 sensors will read differently than if you had the larger exhaust installed. Be sure you're not going through any fluids, coolant will generally burn white.

since you have a 6.0 you wont have O2 sensors so wouldnt worry bout anything like that. my suggestion is pull your egr vavle off and look to see if you have any coolant in or on egr vavle. if there is, your looking at an egr cooler. if you cant find coolant in the egr vavle you might be haveing a head gasket problem.

Re: White Smoke Please Help

By chance do you have dual exhaust? If so is the white smoke coming out of both sides?

egr cooler should be under the 5 year 100,000 mile warranty, where you had to pay the 100.00 war fee last time for the egr vavle I would raise a little cain and make them fix it without having to pay the war fee again since they didn't get it correct the first time.
