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.

EGR valve went out . White smoke out tail pipe . Engine would not run . Replace EGR Valve plus Oil cooler
P.O.S. Engine! I have had this problem more than once (costly repair, &&&&). I have also had several fuel injectors go out (ALL, at different times, in multiples of of 2 & 3; also my Turbo Booster. Thank goodness I have had extended warranties for ALL of this and only had to pay my deductibles to meet! ALL repairs done @ a Ford Dealership/Repair Center.
I recently got a letter from some Attorney advising me that I was part of a class action lawsuit AGAINST FORD for each of my repairs.
I would go to WWW.Ford.com. There is somewhere that you can put in your VIN & it will let you know if there are any recalls on YOUR VEHICLE. NOT ALL 6.0L have these problems. My father-in-law has the SAME engine and has had ZERO issues!
There has been enough $$$ spent on repairs to my 6.0L engine, I could have had a brand new engine installed! GOOD LUCK!!!
