The cooler for the EGR valve can leak coolant internally, which causes white smoke to come from the tail pipe. Hot exhaust gases are cooled by the EGR cooler before being circled back into the engine.

1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty Problems
There is a technical service bulletin for the V8 engines regarding a possible problem with the spark plug being ejected from the cylinder head, damaging the threads in the spark plug hole. If the vehicle is under warranty, cylinder head replacement is recommended. If the vehicle is out of warranty, Ford authorized the use of a specific thread insert to repair the head.
Delamination of the diesel fuel tank can occur resulting in a loss of power due to debris clogging the fuel filters. In some cases the fuel injection pump and/or fuel injectors have also been damaged. Ford has issued a service bulletin (#19728) addressing this concern.
An oil leak may develop from the the right side head gasket. Oil from this type of leak will commonly drip onto the starter. Our technician tell us an updated head gasket is available to correct this concern.
An illuminated Check Engine Light could indicate that one or more of the ignition coils has failed due to excessive spark plug gap. To fix this problem, the ignition coils that have failed, the spark plugs, and all coil boots should be replaced.

Late model 1999 ford F250 7.3L Powerstroke turbo diesel manual 6spd(love it)
Perhaps one of the best diesels ever produced. understand also International made this motor- NOT ford. they are reliable, tons of relentless power, ride like a cadillac, and are extremely insane when properly modified. I have driven many diesels old and nrw, but i will never get rid of my 7.3. People compliment it all the time when filling up. especially when i tell them i get 23mpg on the highway and 20 in town. then it goes from compliments to offers to buy! I am about to flip the odo to 200,000 and cant wait to be a proud owner of a 500,000mile+ 7.3 owner, as there are MANY out there. and i must day, it sure is fun to be faster than most on the road in a 3/4ton diesel. all they hear is a turbo whistlin dixie and all they see is tailights through a cloud of coal! Note: i also have issues with my door sensors and light but the stealership wanted way too much to fix. but thats it other than standard preventative stuff. these trucks are also pretty simple to understand and fix yourself. Call an inernational dealer for future parts/fluids since they are still upgrading and improving the almighty 7.3! Many things ford wont recommend international, who designed the motor, will promise you.
i love my superduty crew cab 4x4 i have the 7.3 power stroke with 394,000 on it.i have put two transmissions,four sets of breaks,and set of ball joints,two waterpumnps and it still runs great and pulling power is great
This truck has a 6.8 L gas engine which gets about 12 MPG empty and 8 mpg when used to tow my 13,500 lb. fifth wheel trailer, but the power is worth it. It's also handy to haul stuff to the dump! The only problem I've had in 10 years is an overhaul of the air conditioner and problems with the electric door lock and light sensor on the passenger door.
