Somewhere on the regen unit itself, maybe stamped into the body:shrug:

Sorry I guess if it is cold it is not uncommon to see white smoke...

07-4-11 6.4L DIESEL - REGENERATION FUNCTIONAL CHARACTERISTICS

Publication Date: February 20, 2007

FORD: 2008 F-Super Duty


ISSUE:
2008 F-Super Duty vehicles equipped with the 6.4L diesel engine are equipped with an oxidation catalytic converter (OC) and diesel particulate filter (DPF). The function and operation of these parts may cause some customers to perceive an issue with their vehicle.

ACTION:
Review the Operating Characteristics with the customer.

OPERATING CHARACTERISTICS

Diesel particulates in the exhaust are trapped by the DPF. Regeneration is the process by which exhaust temperatures are increased so the particulates are combusted.

The frequency and length of regeneration will fluctuate as both are determined by the drive cycle. For most drive conditions, regeneration frequency will vary from 100 - 600 miles (161 - 804 Km) between occurrence and last from 10 to 40 minutes. The first regeneration does not require 100 miles (161 Km) and may occur at any time. The length of regeneration is usually reduced if a constant speed above 30 MPH (48 Km/h) is maintained.

The following is a list of normal operation while the vehicle is in regeneration, and do not require repair. If you are not sure if the vehicle is in regeneration, IDS can be used to monitor the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) PID.

Engine idle speed can be 1100 to 1200 RPM in park/neutral with foot off brake.
High idle speed drops to within 50 RPM of normal idle when the brake pedal is touched, PRNDL is actuated, or clutch is actuated.
White smoke in cold ambients is normal and the amount will be increased during regeneration.
Powertrain power is limited to 325 horsepower (HP).
Engine responsiveness may be slightly different than normal operation.
During initiation of regeneration, exhaust smell may be noticed - especially on new vehicles.
Powertrain sound will be different including air induction noise (including flutter on deceleration or engine shut down), exhaust noise, and changes in engine radiated noise.
During regeneration, exhaust temperatures are elevated.
The following is also normal and may be observed by a technician using a diagnostic tool. It is not likely that a customer would be aware of these:

The throttle body is only active during the regeneration process and during shutdown.
EGR is not operating during regeneration.

WARRANTY STATUS:
Information Only

Throttle body? Their putting throttles on these now? What junk. Im worried about what these trucks are going to be like in 10 years. If theyre falling apart already and their brand new whats gonna happen when they get some miles and time on them.

come on criss88, they are not "falling apart allready" yes they will take more matience(like on the TB) and its a inconvience to have to go through regeneration, its just like antthing else, you just have to take care of it and do the matience.

Does it happen all the time? My truck did that on its first or second regen I noticed. I think brand new motors might put out a little smoke on thier first couple of regens.

Give me a 12 v cummins or an 7.3 IDI anyday of the week over any of this new electronic stuff. I dont trust it, not just the fords, Cats cummins macks, all of them are getting too complicated. I wanna cry every time i open the hood on the new westernstar at work and see those big ole twin turbos on it. Theyre just making it much more complicated then it has to be.
