if you have a rad cap open it and check your coolant level. if it is low fill the rad and leave cap off while you then put the recovery resorvoir at the proper cold level. Move your way along to the thermostat and look for a screw and nut at the top of the housing. If there is one then this is the highest point of the coolant in your vehicle and you will bleed it by opening this hole and running your engine until only coolant flows from the exposed hole. Do not remove the screw just turn it until the hole in the side is revealed. I basically almost remove the screw (till it kind of wobbles) and then turn it back in til it stable (like 1 turn). Be sure that the coolant is flowing without bubbles(air) and not just kinda trickling with short pauses.
If the housing for the thernostat is lower than the rad cap then you bleed it through the rad. Wait for the thernostat to open and the level to go down and then refill it and watch to see no more bubbles (air) escaping. Once the vehicle gets hot you may have to wait for the engine to cool(ie) turn it off for a while and redo it. Also if you are using the thermostat bleed hole be sure to put the rad cap back on before you start the bleed process and keep your eye on the coolant resorvoir adding coolant as needed so you dont **** more air into the engine.

Ford Premium Gold Propylene Glycol only - the gold stuff. The Green ethylene glycol will damage it. Go to Ford parts department or fordparts.com and order it. It is good for 100k miles. The rule has been if it came with the Premium Gold "Yellow" coolant, then refill it with that. Contact your local ford dealership to confirm. That diesel will last for years to come so do not skimp on the correct coolant.

White smoke would be an idication of coolant in the combustion chamber. Check coolant level,check oil to see if it is a milky color.May be a leaking head gasket or possible oil cooler leaking. Let me know if this helpful
