I have a 2004 f350 diesel. blows white smoke wail going down the road. so got back home and parked it. so now it starts and runs for a few then dies.Every time start white smoke come out and the engine run...


The cylinder head gasket has most likely failed, or the block or head have cracked or corroded to allow coolant into the combustion chambers. Commonly the fault is caused by such things as failing to use the correct coolant mix (using water only causes corrosion), or overheating due to coolant leak, or a failed water pump.

It's a major repair, and the exact cause won't be known until the engine is stripped down.

What causes a 97 yukon to go dead going down the road and hard to crank during cold weather... and has white smoke coming from tailpipes


If you have a failing alternator that could cause the vehicle to die while you're going down the road.
Also, the voltage regulator, ( usually in the alternator ) can not put a suficient amount of cahrge back in to the battery to charge it to it's peak. This could cause the vehicle to be hard to start in cold weather.

White smoke is usually associated with a bad fuel/air mix ratio. Because of the difference in humidity with the cold air it is not uncommon to see some white smoke from the tailpipes.

I hope this helps you.

Starting fine, driving fine, but dies while going down the road


Next time disconnect the negative and not the positive if it ever happens again. This happened due to the PCM needing to be reset.
