'06 F250 6.0 White Smoke on Start up
Bought the truck in September last year. Since then I have installed CAI, 4" Straight pipe, and SRL tune. When the cooler weather got started, I noticed that in the mornings when I started my truck I had an irradic idle for about 2 seconds and then it went back to normal. I frequently checked for DTCs but got none. Then about 3 weeks ago when I left work, my buddy said that I shot white smoke from tail pipe when I started up. I couldn't make it do it again so I decided I wasn't too worried about it. Today, he started it for me and let me watch. I got a pretty decent sized plume of white smoke when I started up. I had him kill it and try again. Same result. I pulled the tune off my truck when I got home and I'm going to see if I get similar results in the morning. My question is what are a few things I need to look for to better diagnose what's going on?? I know on the low side, I've either got a bad fuel filter, dirty injector, and/or both. Then it could be a EGR valve going out, or it could be the EGR cooler going (though I have heard that it would be blowing white smoke all the time if it were that). My friends have me a bit paranoid and I need some reassurance or a good way of troubleshooting if you guys have any. There is a reputable mechanic not far from me who does EGR delete, Head Studs, and Larger Oil Cooler installation for around $3000 and I plan to do it eventually but I am not sure I am ready to bite that bullet yet since my wedding is coming up soon. Any help you can give is much appreciated
