I'm a newbie with diesels and am experiencing some issues...at least I think I am.
I've been doing alot of reading to hopefully educate myself.
Alot of the reading right now has been about "smoke color" and different exhaust odors. Also egr and injector issues.
I'm going to try and take this step by step so that when I explain my issue I can provide as much pertinent information as possible.
Anyway I hope someone can tell me what I might be able to compare specific exhaust smells to.
I think I may smell unburnt diesel...but I most definitly would be guessing.
Also whether I'm actually seeing white smoke or a light blue color..........I'm kinda on the fence.
I will say this.......it was about +20C when I filled my tank a couple of days ago. It went to -3c last night. Blowing tons of smoke "water in fuel " light came on - truck stalled.
Going to drain hfcm (on frame rail) and add some anti-gel additive to the fuel. I have a hunch this isn't going to SOLVE the problem.
I have some other issues but hope to get my smell and color test sorted first.
PS. Some A** tried to jack my wheels last night...busted up my ignition switch. Good thing I could get it towed and a new tumbler installed. The door handle will have to wait. Maybe the foker put water or piss in my tank!!!!
Huge thanks in advance for any help.
