Smoke color is to engine diagnosis what licking your finger and sticking it up is to wind speed detection.
White smoke is raw fuel or coolant. If raw fuel you would have a misfiring cylinder and rough running. If its coolant going through cylinder that also causes misfire. If it is coolant leaking from egr cooler it can go out exhaust and smoke white with no abnormal running of engine.
Black smoke is over fueling or lack of air. low turbo boost causes black smoke but also stuck open egr valve which makes the overfed exhaust gas replace the oxygen.
Blue smoke can be oil but it can also be injector timing. On 6.0 FICM issues can make blue smoke when there is ZERO oil consumption.
You do not list the code read from vehicle. That is the place to start.
Thanks for the clarification, thats what i was thinking
