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.

2006 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.
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.

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.

2006 F250 Ford Diesel Super-Duty Crew Cab
Love my truck, but need factory installed fog lights and defanitly needs more turning range. I am satisfied with my mileage. I get 18 miles in the city and 20 miles on the highway empty. It pulls a 31ft, travel trailer with ease. I get anywhere from 16-18 mpg pulling this trailer.
I have a 2006 F-250 Lariat FX4. It is hands down one of the best built and best running trucks i have owned, the interior is awsome everything from power pedals to power rear sliding glass FORD done it right. I have a small lift with 22" rims and 35x12.50 kumhos on it and can get 18 mpg on the highway bone stock. had one injector problem around 85000 miles but ford fixed it and know its at 96000 and running like it will get to 400000 with no problems. FANTASTIC TRUCK!
We have had nothing but problems with the 2006 F-250 we have. It has been in the shop more then we have been able to drive it. I think there should be a lemon law or something on this model truck.they have replaced every injector in the truck. had to buy 2 new batteries. have took it to 2 dealer ships 13 times and still can't drive it with out it breaking down. It is broke down again and I'm sick of it, so if SOMEONE can please help with this I would greatly apperceate it. My name is Michelle Horne I have had this truck 2&half years and can't even drive it. MY # is 229-985-2708.
I love my truck but have the following complaints. The seats could offer more side support. I would have like to have better headlights. The 6.0L is great, but the mileage is not what I would have expected. I get about 12 in town empty and 18-20 @ 70 empty.
The truck is quiet to drive, handling is good and for a truck, the fit and finish is very good. Heat works great and the AC is good also. Transmission is great. Shifts are firm.
Overall, I would buy this truck again, but with a few different options. Too bad the SORT version is available here is the US.
