Puff of white smoke
Well like the title says I noticed this little gem today. Truck gives off a nice white puff of smoke under the initial start-up until that signature PSD whistle starts. Seems to be cranking a tad harder as of late as well.
Truck is a later '04. Mods list is short - Edge Insight CTS, Diamond Eye 4" Turboback exhaust (straight pipe), and Sinister Diesel coolant filter.
I'm leaning towards a blown or on it's last leg EGR cooler from what I'm reading.
Truck had a mess (told in the area of $4,000) of work done to it before the dealership put it up on the lot. That was at the 96K miles mark, truck now has 133K on it. One of the key items was the oil cooler which is why I chose this truck.
Truck is still under an extended warranty I took out against it for another 11K miles or so. Looking for best options here.
I'm definitely going to keep my cooler in, so what is everyones preference on aftermarket coolers?
2004 SCAB SB 6.0 PSD - STUDDED, SCT X4 with custom Gearhead SRL tune, Edge Insight CTS, Blue Spring, 4" straight pipe dumped before rear tire, Sinister Diesel coolant filter, intake elbow and CAC pipes, EGR is MIA
, Superwinch hubs - 2002 Mustang coupe 3.8L V6 5speed - Too many mods to list - 1990 BMW 535i 5speed project car
