Ford F-250 Super Duty Problems

White Smoke From Tail Pipe

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.

Coolant Leak from Radiator

A coolant leak from the radiator can be caused by a defective thermostat bypass. This can cause pressure spikes in the cooling system, which leads to radiator failure. The thermostat assembly and radiator should be replaced.

High Pressure Diesel Fuel Injection Pump May Fail and Cause "No Start" Condition

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

Dealers will update the transmission software free of charge to resolve the concern.

Shifter May Be Moved Out of Park Without Pressing the Brake Pedal

The brake/shift interlock can fail, allowing the transmission to be shifted into park without depressing the brake pedal.
