2008 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.
The high pressure diesel fuel injection pump may fail, resulting in a "no start" condition.
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.

2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty RecallsFuel May Spill in a Frontal Impact
On certain trucks, the fuel tank may move forward in a frontal impact, possibly damaging the fuel delivery module and allowing fuel to spill. This could cause a fire in the presence of an ignition source. Dealers will install a reinforcement bracket free of charge. The recall began May 23, 2008. The Ford recall number is 08C04.
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.
Improper welds on some 40 percent split and captain's driver seats may allow the seat back to break at the seat pivot bracket. In a crash, if the seat pivot breaks, the risk of injury to the driver is increased. Dealers will add a reinforcement to the driver's seat back frame on both style seats or replace the seat back frame if necessary. The recall began March 28, 2008. The Ford recall number is 08C01.
