White Smoke????

Asking this for a friend. The truck yesterday was coming down the highway and blowing white smoke, then as if nothing had happened it cleared up and was fine. Then when coming over the highway at a stop light the turbo started building boost and the truck was surging. Any ideas what it could be causing these things. Thanks

Send a message via Yahoo to gtspowerstroke
Was there a knocking noise of any kind that went along with it? Did it register boost on the gauge or did it just sound like it was makeing boost?
