Question about Ford F-350
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
