Help 6.0 Blowing white sometimes bluish white smoke
I am new to this Forum. I just bought a 05 F350 6.0L truck a month ago. It has 90,000 miles on it. When I test drove it, everything was fine. Shortly after I brought it home I noticed it was smoking.
Here is the weird thing. It only smokes when at idle or coming to stop sign, backing up to trailers. Seems like at low RPMs. It also doesn't do it all the time. One day it is fine and the next you can sometimes hardly see the truck (really embarrasing at stop signs). I am also getting like 10 mpg (that was pulling a couple of trailers and getting rpms up high to try and diagnose problems) The tail pipe smells like fuel not coolant. The smoke will just hang around too.
Now this truck has a Stage 1 turbo and the egr cooler has been replaced. The egr is dry. Has the latest flash from ford.
It also seems to blow coolant out of the recovery tank. It is not over full.
The coolant looks green too. I plan on flushing it all out, but I don't want to do anything until I know if I have to tear the hole thing down or what.
I am at a loss, and am getting really frustrated with this truck. Any ideas would be very much appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
