    The other day when I cranked my 2000 F350 up it died. I restarted it and began driving and noticed when I started from a dead stop in first gear, a puff of white smoke was coming out of the exhaust. This only happened when the clutch engaged the first gear and only four times. After that it ran as normal. Anyone have ideas on what caused this?

    Diesel or gas? Check radiator for steady air bubbles. Possible head gasket leak.

    Repo Man62 I have a diesel with 84,000 miles on it. I had a friend tell me that it could be the cam sensor going bad. Do you know if this could be the prob. Thanks for any info you might have

    Repo Man62, no there are not any warning lights on, it doesnt spudder and I have not had a loss of any power or acceleration. Everything is the same except for those few puffs of white smoke

    I'm thinking MAYBE beginning turbo problems or water in fuel.
