I just got my first deisel 2 months ago its an 03 F-250 6.0 with the 80,000miles. I added 4" strait pipe, egr delete, blue spring kit, S&B intake, intake elbow, gauges, banjo bolts, ccv mod, ecm rollback and atlas 40 ficm tune from php and sct tunes from innovative. I have new oem fuel filters and a fresh oil change. I also have headstuds laying on the bench just waiting for the right time to install them.
The truck was running great but now it started to blow a big puff of white smoke when I start it after it has been sitting for awhile. I will also get a little bit of a haze for about a block and then it clears up. When I start it it cracks off hard like it is almost going to hydo lock. I right away thought it was my head gaskets so no big deal I was going to put them in but the smoke does not smell like coolant at all. So I thought a cracked injector nozzel or o-ring but no missfire at all. I pulled my injectors anyways and hooked a pressure tester to my degas bottle and pumped it up to 18psi it only dropped 1.5 lbs in 12 hours so it cant be coolant right??? I guess I am wondering what to do next, someone said send my injectors out to be tested??? I can do headgaskets but I do not want to have the same problem when I am done.
Any help would be appreciated thanks,
