6.0 smokes, burns eyes, runs good. no codes Help
Help, have a 03 6.0 with 130,000 miles. Truck smokes when idling/fast idle grey color, smells like fuel and stinks like fuel burns your eyes. No codes on the AE, power balance looks good on the AE as well. Runs and starts good. Turns over good but I suspect a possible leaking injector. Turbo has been replaced and was bad also, and it had a plugged converter that is removed now. Truck does not smoke blue like it did with the Turbo bad. EGR has a block off kit and the cooler is removed. Oil cooler replaced, ICP replaced, EBP replaced both sensor were bad. I did not see bubbles in the filter housing when testing. I put all new orings and copper seals on the injectors when I replaced HG and torqued then to spec. 4 of the injectors are ford remans. I pulled the manifolds and ran it to try to find a smoking cylinder, drivers side looks clear and not burning eyes bad, passenger side all the cylinders look similar with light smoke, but they do let out a spark now and then out the heads when running. Driver side has no sparks. Smoke burns your eyes very bad and you cant hardly breath like fuel.
So since I can confirm that it is the passenger side, what now. I cant really find a cylinder that smokes a whole lot worse than the others. Possibly the second one smokes more but its really hard to tell. I suspect fuel since it burns your eyes so bad. What could cause the whole bank to be smoking, over fueling. Do I have a leaky injector possibly. Do I pull the injectors and have them tested? Where do I go now. No other problems other than smoking bad and burning eyes? Can the dealer run a better power balance than the AE? I'm at a loss. Help!
