Smokes now...

Is it normal for these engines to smoke a little bit on startup after having the head studs and other stuff done? Mine NEVER smoked at all, ever, before having the work done. Now it's a purplish haze on startup... I think it's probably ok, but it's new so I was curious. Thanks!

i've always experienced this after replacing anything high pressure oil related or when the heads come off. It will wear off im sure, but you never know. Seems like whoever is doing the work on your truck doesn't know what they're doing (from your recent posts)

I wish I'd never taken it to them... Apparently, I should've taken it to Burger King and had it worked on... At least you get it your way!

So, the smoke thing may go away? That helps my feelings a little bit- I was worried... Thank you sir!

Classic! Hope it clears up. Nothing worse than half a$$ work at a full price.

I was going to say if it has been relatively cold where you are when you are i.e. less than 40*F when you start, then it is normal as I saw that with my truck in the winter months when i would first start it in the morning.
