6.4l Power loss

My 08 6.4l starts, idles fine but has no power when I depress pedal. I drained water separater, replaced fuel filters and all fluids are at the proper levels. When going up a hill near home plumes of white smoke and no power. Any ideas of the problem? Thanks in advance.

Injectors or HPFP are my thoughts.

Any coolant loss?

Perhaps EGR valve or coolers are the issue.

Be sure to mention that. It points to EGR coolers or the valve. They will need to pressure test the system.

Sometimes moisture buildup in the cac will cause the white smoke as well but you have power loss too so that points to other causes.

What is your fuel ecomony and frequecy of regens?
