2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty ProblemsSmoke From Tail Pipe Due to Failed EGR Valve
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.
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.
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.

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. The recall began June 20, 2005. The Ford recall number is 05S33.
