6.0 blowing out white smoke

my dad has a 6.0 and this morning going to work it was pouring out white smoke from the exhaust so bad it looked like there was fog outside. finally settled down a bit but kept doing it all day. head gaskets?? or possibly a stuck injector or something?

whats do you guys think?? i own a 7.3 and im not familar with his 6.0

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.
