puff of smoke

Well this morning it was cold when I got out of work at 6 and when I started it up she puffed out a gray or blue smoke for just a split second on start up... Am I doomed already? I looked at it when I started up tonight at 530 to head back into work and I got nothing?

Need a few more details on your truck. High miles? Stock? any other problems ever? I've got an 05 KR CC shortbox with 148K and I get a puff almost every time it starts on a cold day if the heater hasn't been plugged in. My guess would be injectors are starting to show signs of age but nothing to worry about for quite a while as long as you keep up on your maintenance.

37k? Yeah I'd say you're fine for quite a while. Like 60,000 miles at least. Just keep up on the maintenance and you should be fine. Bulletproof when you can, install a coolant filter and get rid of Ford coolant and switch to sylicate free as soon as you can.
