White Smoke From Tail Pipe on Ford F-350 Super Duty

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.

It has happened twice. White Smoke, lose coolant. EGR failed both times. Repair at Ford Dealer $2000 plus!
White smoke at start up, pretty much stops once warm. ERG unplugged and getting replaced but pretty sure I'll need an EGR cooler as well

Our ford f-350 has been in the ford garage for a month and has had every test under the sun. The truck was just coming out of the shop after they replaced injectors 1 and 3. Tried driving out the parking lot and couldn't get over a 1000 rpm. They said 1-4. Things possible wrong. Motorblown, Rod, and now there saying a valve in the motor. Not 100% but pretty sure they said. The truck went in because it was blowing white smoke and running rough. We thought we fixed it by putting injectors in. We spent $1600 to fix that and thought it was all good till we couldn't get out of there parking lot. Does anyone had a problem or know of recalls. This truck has low miles for a diesal. Its never been beat on and taken very good care of it. Were just so baffled.

when it tried to start it would sputter, I turned to the key off again and let the glow plugs heatup again it would do the same thing a number of times when it did sort of start is when a lot of white smoke would come when I put it in gear it would not pickup speed.
