Question about Ford F-350

2 Answers

I have aford F-350 that blows white smoke. the driver of the druck stated that the truck was blowing smoke, he thought that it had something to do with the turbo. in the morning when i started the truck it was not smoking. performed a oil and fuel filter service and the check engine light was on P0404 and P1335 both egr codes. erased the codes and took the truck for a test drive no problems. the driver did not tell me that the truck started to over heat and they added coolant to it. as far as i know the truck ran good for a week. last saturday the truck started to over heat again and blowing white smoke. they added water to get the truck home and again did not tell me that the truck over heated. was about to replace the egr valve when i was able to talk to the driver and that's when he told me the the truck started smoking after the truck started to run hot. added another gallon an a half of coolant at that time, a day later. alot of the information that i have found leads me to replaced the egr valve, clean or replace the egr cooler, and have the turbo cleaned. can you give me any tips, repair procedures, and parts needed.

This is not a good sign, especially if you just purchased the truck. Take it back to where you bought it if possible, this sounds like a blown head gasket.

Otherwise you may want to check your coolant level to see where it's at. Can you tell if the white smoke has a sweet, coolant odor to it? The 6L diesels have water cooled EGR cooler that is known to crack and leak internally into the engine. It can look a lot like a head gasket. It would be a good idea to do a pressure test on the cooling system to rule out any leaks. I'm guessing water in the cylinders can cause a rough cold start for diesels if it has accumulated.
hope this helps

My 85 honda accord is blowing white smoke out of the exhaust pipe in the rear and it appears to have something dripping onto the heat shield under the car, what do you think could be the problem?


check the brake system for any leaks. check the master cylinder for leaking out the rear of it. if you take the master cylinder nuts of that hold it to the power brake booster and slide the master off the booster and look at the rear of the master to check for a fluid leak or dampness. if you see this replace the master cylinder. also sometimes the power booster will suck the fluid were its drawn into the engine and burnt and the smoke will look white. another thing that causes white smoke is a bad head gasket as the coolant is sucked into the combustion chamber and burnt, it can also leak externally and cause the dripping you see.

It won't move and is blowing white and black smoke


White smoke (sweet smelling, too) means antifreeze is leaking into the combustion chamber, blowing out the tail end of your truck. the boiling water in your reservoir means the pressure from the combustion chamber is pushing air into your cooling system which will eventually surface in your reservoircontainer

black smoke: it can be unburned fuel damaged turbo charger etc. light amount of smoke can be normal large amounts = problem.

I have 06 ford 350 6 liter diesel has do not run for 4 days batteries are low and blowing white smoke


White smoke is a sign of water which may be a sign of a blown head gasket..... havve a reputable shop do a compression test on this vehicle.
If the car runs a few minutes does it overheat??? If so turn it off and dont drive it until it gets fixed if not white could be condensation and low batteries could be just in need of replacement and or a good charge.
