Well, I didn't get any responses on this, so I just started messing around on my own. I'm either going to learn something about diesels or I'm going to have to sell it and move on.
I purely lucked out on the white smoke. Pulled the EGT valve out and it was full of black soot. Not caked in there but maybe 1/16" all over. I wire brushed it and stuck it back in and now the white smoke issue seems to be gone.
Based on what I've read I bought and installed the blue spring kit and I changed my fuel filters. I also bought an insight edge monitor/programmer,(cs) though I have no idea what to use it for. It does tell me I've got 50V from the FICM, seems good. What do I really want to monitor with this?
Retired, I recently moved to the country. A county that does not require diesel smog checks.
Should I be considering an EGR delete before I start experiencing cooler problems?
