So I finally got my truck back together, I had a clogged oil cooler. Changed that, put a new bulletproof egr cooler, coolant filter kit, new fuel pressure blue spring & hardline turbo oil supply. I got it started up last night & it seemed to be running fine but one thing that I noticed was at first there was a little smoke comming from somewhere near the intake manifold. It went away after letting it run for a few minutes. I went for a drive this morning (too many beers last night ) the truck lacks power & white smoke or steam is coming out of the tail pipe. I think its steam it dissipates very quickly. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance for the help!!
Its a 04 with 120k miles. No mods all stock. I just installed isspro gauges coolant temp & oil temp. The coolant temp was running around 160 on a short drive about 1 mile. Im not able to read the oil temp yet cause they sent me the wrong wiring harness with the gauge the right one should be here monday or tuesday. I'm not loosing any coolant if it was the head gaskets I'd be losing some right? The check engine light is on but I don't have any way of reading it today. I should be able to borrow a scanner from a friend tomorrow.
Ya the old one did fail. Burning off the coolant in the exhaust would explain the steam coming out of the tail pipe but what about the lack of power? I looked at the turbo all the connections look good.
