Re: 6.0 blowing out white smoke

Re: 6.0 blowing out white smoke

What does the smoke smell like?

Are you losing coolant leve in your degas bottle?

Re: 6.0 blowing out white smoke

A failed injector can look the same way. Hopefully the OP has figured out his issue - whatever it is .....

Re: 6.0 blowing out white smoke

Make sure its smoke... a blown egr will blow steam out of the exhaust and it will look like white smoke. If he's losing coolant that's probably the culprit.
