Model Years Affected: 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010

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

Average Mileage: 100,168 mi (34,500 mi - 221,000 mi)

Verified

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.
