This could be the FICM or the injectors. If you have a code reader, it can help determine if its the FICM. You can also check out this thread http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/899444-ficm-testing-procedure.html
You are probably already aware of all the 6.0 problems. It does sound like a fuel issue. The injectors are unfortunately a problem and very sensitive(don't ever run out of gas). If one injector is bad or going bad, truck will run rough at idle but once rpms get up, the truck will seem to run better. When 2 or more injectors go bad, truck will barely run. In either case, power will be very low at lower rpms.
thanks let me know if this helps

2005 ford F350 6.0 diesel will not build power nor turbo power. Misses and losing coolent. will the egr cooler make it act this way


Sounds like a head gasket leak on the intake side or intake gasket. Your boost is leaking out and coolant is leaking into the cylinder. Get a bulletproof kit. It is well worth the money

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.

2003 f250 won't start


Is this a small amount of white smoke or a lot of white smoke? If it is a lot of white smoke it could be a head gasket problem.

1. Do you have coolant in oil or vice versa?
2. Pull spark plugs and inspect for plugs wet with coolant.
3. Do a compression test and check for a low cylinder.

If you have issues in any of these points you will need to replace the head gaskets.
