    My 2004 F-250 3.0 diesel is 3 months past the Fort 5 year, 100,000 mile warranty, and my extended warranty (7 years, 75,000 miles) says they won't cover my EGR and Oil cooler problem because it is "plugged" not "broken". The truck only has 51,300 miles and has had timely routine mtce at the dealer. But, I seem to be stuck with what the dealer's mtce shop is calling a $3,000 problem.
    I have not authorized the work yet because it doesn't seem like it should be my problem.

    And what will keep it from happening over and over again?

F250 Lariat Diesel turbo no function sometimes and exhaust smoke white


you didnt specify if this is a 6L or 6.4L since its an 07 it could be either. If 6.0L, White smoke typically indicates a blown egr cooler and this usually damages the egr valve which may cause it to fail open allowing the coolant to enter the combustion chambers and be burnt and cause white smoke, If its a 6.4L I have seen the highside turbo bearings fail causing poor performance and seal failure resulting in oil getting into exhaust, high exhaust temps make it burn and it may appear as a whitish colored smoke depending on severity. Hopefully for you its a 6.0L becuase the 6.4L turbo r&r is a repair where we remove the entire cab from the truck. However your not much better off with 6.0L since egr cooler/oil cooler job can easily run you $1500-2000.

well the question is where did the coolant go. if it didnt leak out it must have went out the pipe. As you stated, white smoke, white smoke is coolant. You definately need to get this to the shop. You cannot drive it this way or further damage will occur.

When did Ford Make it manditory to change out Oil Cooler when replacing EGR Cooler on F-250 or warranty would be void on that EGR Cooler?


They do this because if the oil cooler is partialy blocked up then the coolant flow into the EGR cooler will be restricted and will cause the new cooler to fail. The leading cause of EGR cooler failure is from overheating. either from lack of coolant flow or a bad EGR valve letting to much exhaust flow through the cooler.

Egr cooler repalced to get us passed warranty - oil cooler was not replaced prior to 160k warranty exipred- on vacation 2000kms away (only 11000kms after egr cooler fixed) from home towing a trailer...


If the dealer put an egr cooler on and didnt replace oil cooler, it can blow out egr cooler again , restriced oil cooler causes egr cooler to blow out , which in turn can cause overheat and blown headgasket also, if you are seeing white smoke now it is possible for the egr to be blown out again as wel as the oil ooler and/or headgasket

Egr cooler


They should have replaced it right then. They know that it should be replaced if the EGR valve itself goes bad. They are trained in this and know what they are supposed to do. Tell them if they do not repair it right like they should hae 3 months ago you will go to the BBB and so on to get things right..

6l diesel


It does sound like an engine oil cooler failure. The cooler on this is the big lump of metal under the oil filter housing. It fits down into the block and has several hoses and sensors. The normal way to check for a leak is to pull it out and pressure test it. You may however be able to drain your coolant, then look for a short piece of hose between your oil cooler and EGR cooler. This hose will twist about 90Deg and then you can slide it back toward the EGR cooler. Make sure you have plenty of engine oil and start the engine with this hose off. If you have a bad enough oil leak the oil may be pumped out here. This may also be a craked head or a front cover problem, but most of the time those will put coolant in the oil.
