if you have a rad cap open it and check your coolant level. if it is low fill the rad and leave cap off while you then put the recovery resorvoir at the proper cold level. Move your way along to the thermostat and look for a screw and nut at the top of the housing. If there is one then this is the highest point of the coolant in your vehicle and you will bleed it by opening this hole and running your engine until only coolant flows from the exposed hole. Do not remove the screw just turn it until the hole in the side is revealed. I basically almost remove the screw (till it kind of wobbles) and then turn it back in til it stable (like 1 turn). Be sure that the coolant is flowing without bubbles(air) and not just kinda trickling with short pauses.
If the housing for the thernostat is lower than the rad cap then you bleed it through the rad. Wait for the thernostat to open and the level to go down and then refill it and watch to see no more bubbles (air) escaping. Once the vehicle gets hot you may have to wait for the engine to cool(ie) turn it off for a while and redo it. Also if you are using the thermostat bleed hole be sure to put the rad cap back on before you start the bleed process and keep your eye on the coolant resorvoir adding coolant as needed so you dont **** more air into the engine.

white smoke indicates the engine is burning antifreeze, you could have head gasket issue, if thats the case the antifreeze is getting in the cylinders and the engine is burning it. could be a stuck exhaust valve( i doubt it). find out from ford what that code indicates, that would be a better clue than tearing into the motor

do a compression test, you may have a bend valve , I'm assuming its not getting overheating so I don't think its the head gasket..a compression test can give you the answer..hope this was very helpful...thanks

Bad Injectors most likely. I have a 2006 f-350 and was having the same problem. I ended up changing the fuel pump and 4 injectors.
