Head gasket

Hello all.
I have a 2005 f350 6.0 diesel that I am concerned about head gasket. The exhaust is the same color as my gas engine trucks exhaust. Once the diesel warms up the exhaust color clears up. It just started doing it a couple months ago. The anti freeze and oil looks like it should.does this mean head gasket failer?

The only way to know a better picture is testing. A proper compression test and leak down test should get the results you need to determine if the heads should or need to come off. If you're DIY then exercise extreme caution as the diesel fuel in these engines is under very high pressure and should be depressurized properly. These engines are replete with problems from day one. EGR issues, injector failures, high pressure pump failures, high pressure oil line failures, sensor failures and electronics failures too name a few. Any or just about all of these could cause similar results. BTB - Welcome to the forum.
