If you have the 3.0 liter engine the most common problem for white smoke and loss of power is the vacuum regulator/oil separator, they are built into one piece located under the intake manifold. There are four hoses that should be replaced at the same time that go to it.

Smoking white smoke at idal and lots of black at 1500 and above . a little miss at 1500rpms no power lose


Black smoke is a sign of an overly rich fuel/air mixture. White smoke is a sign of coolant entering the combustion chamber. Most likely you have a blown head gasket. Other symptoms are loss of coolant with no apparent leak, loss of power, miss, oil level overfull, a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap. Stop driving this truck until you find the problem. Driving it with a blown head gasket will destroy the engine. A compression test will verify this.

Have your head gasket checked you may have a small tear or hole in it allowing coolant/water into your engine internals. This smoke and power loss probably also happens at highway speeds yet is not noticed due to cars momentum
