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.

2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty Problems
The high pressure diesel fuel injection pump may fail, resulting in a "no start" condition.
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.
A severe lack of power may develop because the hose from the turbocharger to the intake manifold can come loose, resulting in loss of boost pressure to the engine.
It is common to see the variable vanes inside the turbo seize or bind from carbon buildup. This causes an overboost or underboost condition when driving.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
The welded lift blocks may compress due to over tightening of the u-bolts or excess vehicle payloads, reducing the clamping force of the u-bolts. This could result in shifting and damage to the rear axle and drive shaft. Truxx will replace the affected lift blocks with non-welded aluminum or cast iron blocks to correct this concern. This recall is scheduled to begin on April 16, 2008. The Truxxx recall number is 08-01BLK.

On trucks equipped with the 5.4L V8 or 6.8L V10, the fuel jumper line may have an end that was improperly formed and could allow fuel to leak. The engine may lose power and eventually stall. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Dealers will install an external retention clip at the fuel jumper line to the main fuel bundle connection.

2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty Reviews
I have a 2005 F-250 V8 with over 100k miles. up till last week it still drove and looked new. Now the check engine light has come on and truck is running bad, shutting down, losing power and miliage is horrible. read out states camshaft position sensor. Replaced the part and ran fine for 2 hours then check engine light came back on and it acting up again. i pulled the sensor and cleaned off and re-installed but no luck. anybody have any suggestions?
good truck so far overall
This is the worst truck I have ever owned in my life. Spent over $2000.00 at a reputable mechanic shop and still won't run. maf, pcm, lots of diagnoses time, and still nothing. Waste of money if you ask me.
Bought my 2005 F250 Ext cab 4x4 with the 5.4 v8 new in Oct of 2004. Had a 2.5 lift put on it at 5000 miles. It has 315/70 r17 tires on it and An ARB snorkel with 8,500 lb winch up front. It just turned 27,000 miles!!! Has the same brakes and battery, although my mechanic said I was on borrowed time with the battery! Had a recall for a fuel line. Ford took care of it, no problems. The only things I do are the oil changes with Mobile 1. The ride is rough with that solid axle up front but it is super strong and works great when I pull out big stuck vehicles! Next F250 will be a crew cab. Great Truck thanks FORD!!
I have a 2005 F-250 Super Duty . My question is about my brake pedal going all the way down to the floor . If you press on it hard, the pedal stay's , if you let a little pressure go, it will go all the way down to the floor. Please I need some advise ?
