Sounds like EGR cooler. I could be wrong though. We've had a few with symptoms like that and that is what it ended up being. Good luck.

We had the same problem last month with an 06. replaced it with an aftermarket cooler from http://www.bulletproofdiesel.com/default.asp
what a difference between the oem and the aftermarket.

I've not worked on the IC version yet, damn Fords it's always a head gasket.
