Unhappy Blue Smoke

I'm getting blue smoke when I start my pickup. 2003 Ford 6.0L. 34,000 miles. Dealer says normal for this climate and temperture.I dont think so. I live in Denver, Co.

Welcome to Powerstroke.org Marty!
Is this something that just started happening or is the truck new to you? Also do you have a chip, tuner, aftermarket anything?

Bluesmoke

This has been going on for awhile. No I do not have a chip or any thing else has been done to my truck, it's completely stock. Ford dealer is the only one who has touched or serviced truck. Truck is serviced every 5000 miles or near about.

How much smoke are you getting? Is it a slight puff and then it stops? Does it do it any other time? If it has a block heater you can prove the dealership wrong. Plug it in and then see if it does it. I know in my cummins if I crank it in the morning before the wait to start light goes out (the glow plugs warm up) it will puff a little black. I don't know have you had an oil analysis done? That might help.

Unhappy Blue Smoke

I'm getting a puff of blue smoke not black when I start my truck, doesn't seem to matter what the tempature is. I can't tell if it last any longer than that,because when you take off and give it throttle you get black smoke like all diesels. It doesn't seem to be useing oil, but blue smoke indicates oil problem,some where. No I haven't had an oil analysis.

Well I guess thats why they call em powersmokes. :p I don't know then. I know under normal and hard acceleration my cummins burns all the fuel. Maybe somebody else might know.

I live down here in Fountain, CO which is a little over an hour south of you, I have a '96 7.3 and it smokes like that on startup. I think its probably got to do with the altitude and thinner air. It did the same thing last winter too, not really during the summer. Hope this helps.

I've seen this in a lot of diesel's. Even on Cummins. Not sure if its good or bad. Could be just the altitude just like overl0rd said.

Good to see your using question marks PS Killer.

Cummins goes to 1,000,000 miles without rebuild. Okay I won't argue with you. Especially when I'm right.
