Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 2006 sprinter Diesel engine which is blowing white smoke
If water gets into the oil, it will do that.
if the EGR valve fails it will do the same thing

'07 cummins engines are not to smoke at all. Cold, hot or upside down. If its smokin, its broken is the motto. '07 's are common rail fuel systems. I think you may have the DPF and the DOC exhaust system needs looked at. If no codes, have the dealer double check with ENSITE or comparable programs to check the engines crank and cam possitiion sensors to make sure they have the same rpm. you could have one going out. If just at startup you have smoke, may just be valve seals leaking. Good luck hope this helped.
by the way unburned fuel is black not white, thats oil...

Does any one have a idea a friend here has changed ecm, inj, fuel pump checked conector at fire wall ,fuel and has a short wrecker tow f450 99 and will be going down the road and he says the thing just loses all power and kind of just won't do over 15 to 20mph and lets it sit and he says it will do it again. I am not sure how long it takes but since I don't work on diesels I figured I would have the experts that do if anyone knows it's you guys any help he is in Charlotte NC I can put you with this guy he has had it to all the parts changers and no luck Thanks Mark 704 492 1647

White smoke means that you have a coolant leak. Two possible causes for that - either the head gasket is punctured and must be replaced or the head itself is damaged and must be welded by an expert.
Either way the engine must be dismantled to make a full diagnose and repair.
