BUT WHY AND COULD IT BE THE COMPUTER OR DEISEL FUEL PUMP
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
DID YOU RECIEVE A PHOTO YET FROM ME AS TO VEHICLE ID

White smoke is from either a timing issue or coolant being burned through exhaust.

If you are not loosing coolant then its a timing issue.

Give me a few minutes to look up sensors on this

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question

The timing is all done through the fuel injection pump so if you are not loosing anti-freeze then you need to have injection pump rebuilt

If you are loosing coolant then you need a head gasket.
