03 heavy smoke, low power, burns eyes, sounds funny
Ok so I bought a 03 6.0 with 136,000 miles with some serious problems. I have an AE and just put in studs and oem head gaskets. In the last 500 miles truck has 2 new heads, egr delete and egr cooler removed, oil cooler replaced, 4 new injectors on one side. All injectors have new orings. Ficm tests good hold 48 cranking and running.
Ok the bad it starts after a a longer crank and idles ok but smokes heavy grey smoke, smells like fuel, burns your eyes even when warmed up at any rpm. Has low power can only get about 40 MPH. Almost acts like it has a plugged converter and sounds like it. I cannot rev it up past about 3000 RPM.
It had/ has oil in the coolant, milky valve covers and the head gaskets were good and egr cooler was removed prior to this. It has some blow by or steam coming from the oil dip stick tube (its broken). I found the ICP sensor with oil in the connector so I will replace that and the connector.
Code I only have
P2285 I disconnected the ICP due to oil in it.
