Model Years Affected: 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008

Engines Affected: 6.0L V8 Diesel Turbo, 6.4L V8 Diesel Turbo

Average Mileage: 101,396 mi (34,500 mi - 221,000 mi)


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.

    I have white smoke coming from the tail pipe and it over heats because of it. It is in the shop now and hopefully it only is the EGR valve.
