Being a 6.0l engine, if you are not seeing any major leaks on the ground, then most likely you have an EGR cooler that is starting to leak, this sends coolant into the exhaust and burns it up, I would suggest you have the EGR cooler replaced as well as the oil cooler or have an EGR delete kit installed.
