    Any add on mods that could be malfunctioning? No help, I know. Good luck to your bud, at least he has a friend like you to help him out.

    Smoking out the exhaust; white or black smoke? At idle? Under load or acceleration? At a steady cruise?

    I know I've heard of this, I just can't remember the fix. I'm thinking it is simple.

    It's possible that the combustion temp is too low. Does the exhaust have an unusually strong diesel fuel odor? It might also be a bad injector.

    Is the cooling system level dropping at all? A head gasket leak can do the white smoke thing (steam, of course, but it looks a lot like white smoke).

    Coolant level is fine. The truck was on the road for over an hour when it started, so I think the temp is ok.

    Has he got an exhaust temp gauge on that thing? I'm just curious if it reads differently (as in lower) than normal.

    He was having to floor it to get it to go 40 mph. He stopped and checked everything again, and when he took off, the problem went away for a while again and is back again. Does anyone know anyone into the Dodge diesels they can call for a educated guess. He is several hours away from home right now, limping his truck back to Dallas.

    He filled the 100 gallon extra tank before he started the trip. Same place as always. Thanks for the info. As of right now, the truck is running correctly. I am leaning towards an injector problem. I will update in a little while.
