The white smoke is probably from glow plugs not working. As the oil warms up it will get thinner and could cause high pressure oil issues. You need to be able to check your high pressure oil psi.

You first need to do an injector buzz test. If it fails inspect the wiring harness where it goes through the valve covers. The glow plugs are also powered through these plugs and on a duty cycle they draw a ton of juice and will melt plugs. If it passes that you need to do a cylinder balance test. If it passes that You are pulling all the injectors to replace all the o-rings and disc seals. The white smoke once it warms up under load is unburnt fuel. Bad o-rings or disc seals will let fuel leak into the cylinder. This being the white smoke. The only way to diag that truck is with a scanner and not a cheap one. I have been a powerstroke tech for ten years.
He says this (above) and you do this (below), you're a fucking idiot? Good luck installing your smoke switch dumbass.

Hahahahaha, this guy pm's me to tell me i'm being mean. Why does everyone in this country act so helpless and want people on the internet to do everything for them.

YOU HAVE TO SCAN IT, stop bumping this thread and asking for suggestions you're wasting your time. Obviously, you don't know how to fix it, get it to a proffessional.

Heres an idea, type in yellowpages.com into your browser.
Type in tow truck
Call local towing company

Call Ford dealer or mechanic shop
let them know it's coming there way

and then you can quit pretending to be helpless.

Had lots of injector problems on these, o-rings on the injectors roll causing low power when they heat up and a grayish smoke, need to watch the injector pressure while running with a scanner, it needs 500psi to even start, hope this helps
