Smokey

05' 6.0L. I went out this morning and started my truck, it was kinda cool I say about 55degrees. And I was going to let it warm up for a few minutes. I was out messing around the house and noticed it was just blowing blue smoke everywhere. It did it for about 5 to 8 minutes then quit. I hooked up to my trailer and went on my way. NO power and it just drank the fuel. I was on a 3/4 tank drove about 100 miles and now I am a little past a 1/4 tank. I say the trailer weighs about 11,000lbs. What gives I am starting to get disgusted with my truck.

Give a little more details. How many miles are on the truck. How much have you pulled the trailer in the past, if at all?

I pulled a 20 foot goose neck pretty much empty last friday about 700 miles and that trip it went through almost 4 tanks of fuel. The truck has 45,000 miles on it.

First of all.....ADAM MIGHT WANT TO BE WATCHING HIS SIG, AVITAR, PROFILE PICTURE, ETC very closely after that comment

As far as the problem at hand......is there any codes in the prossessor?? is there a check engine light??

Im guessing there is a sticking turbo issue, but there is the possiblility of injector(s) as well.
