Re: white smoke

I would bet EGR cooler before a headgasket. What does the smoke smell like? is it a "sweet" smell or more of a diesel smell? Also what mods do you have done to the truck?

Leaky turbo seals could also be an issue, but I would put my money on EGR first. Are you losing coolant?

Re: white smoke

Tough to smell the smoke when you are driving away. Grab a buddy and con him into smelling it.

Re: white smoke

If it smells sweet that usually points to coolant leak possibly from a bad EGR cooler. Might consider deleting the EGR system, best thing I ever did for my 6.0, FCDP has the best kit in my opinion.
