There is a possibility it is overfull. Ford put out a TSB which lowered the hot full level on the recovery tank about an inch. These recovery tanks also have had a history of developing pinholes and cracks on the top side that sometimes appear to be leaks from the cap. If you do not find a remedy with the tank itself, there are tools that can be used to check for combustion gasses in the cooling system. If you find combustion gasses in the cooling system, have the EGR cooler pressure tested before pulling the heads. If you do have to pull the heads replace the headbolts with ARP studs and nuts.

F250 Lariat Diesel turbo no function sometimes and exhaust smoke white


you didnt specify if this is a 6L or 6.4L since its an 07 it could be either. If 6.0L, White smoke typically indicates a blown egr cooler and this usually damages the egr valve which may cause it to fail open allowing the coolant to enter the combustion chambers and be burnt and cause white smoke, If its a 6.4L I have seen the highside turbo bearings fail causing poor performance and seal failure resulting in oil getting into exhaust, high exhaust temps make it burn and it may appear as a whitish colored smoke depending on severity. Hopefully for you its a 6.0L becuase the 6.4L turbo r&r is a repair where we remove the entire cab from the truck. However your not much better off with 6.0L since egr cooler/oil cooler job can easily run you $1500-2000.

well the question is where did the coolant go. if it didnt leak out it must have went out the pipe. As you stated, white smoke, white smoke is coolant. You definately need to get this to the shop. You cannot drive it this way or further damage will occur.

Sounds like you need a new turbo, the turbo is lubed by engine oil and shaft seals leaking into the intake.

Oil in coolant and engine will turn over and will not start...2005 Ford F450 Super Duty 6.0 Diesel


oil in the coolant generally indicates a blown head gasket. If the head gasket is blown, oil and coolant could be getting into the cylinders. You should have a mechanic check it out. I don't know a whole lot about dianosinng diesels. If you can get the glow plugs out, turn it over and see it any water or oil blows out of the holes.

6l diesel


It does sound like an engine oil cooler failure. The cooler on this is the big lump of metal under the oil filter housing. It fits down into the block and has several hoses and sensors. The normal way to check for a leak is to pull it out and pressure test it. You may however be able to drain your coolant, then look for a short piece of hose between your oil cooler and EGR cooler. This hose will twist about 90Deg and then you can slide it back toward the EGR cooler. Make sure you have plenty of engine oil and start the engine with this hose off. If you have a bad enough oil leak the oil may be pumped out here. This may also be a craked head or a front cover problem, but most of the time those will put coolant in the oil.
