I always though white smoke was coolant. Possibly something to do with the thermostat opening?? However I thought the thermostats opened at like 200 degrees on these trucks. Bump for you. More educated people then myself are soon to come.

"Above the tail pipe"? Can you explain that? Also, is the DPF still on the truck? Are you regening?
