Really need some advice on my troubles, techs please.
Friday I went and had my oil changed at the place that does all my vehicles and just about every other diesel in town. When I left I noticed a stutterin/vibration on acceleration. Took it back and found out it was nothing that he could have done. We thought it was water, but after inspectiong the fuel we ruled that out. Saw a little garbage in the fuel and changed the fuel filters. No improvment and no more garbage. Also after the truck is hot and I let it sit for 2-3 hours and start it up a lot of white smoke pours out. If it sits until the engine is cold again, it does not smoke. Took it into the dealership today. They found a few small problems on the truck such as leaking de-gas tank, dirty egr valve, reflash pcm. When it came to my problem they had no problem recreating it, but could find nothing wrong. They said 1 likely culprit was a bad Torque Converter, but no way to test that without pulling the tranny. I don't know what to do because they had 2 techs on it(I have full confidence in these techs, until now, this dealership is just unreal at how great they are usually.) and basically the final diagnosis is..... run it until it finally breaks and then we will know what is wrong. I tow a 13k pound trailer and don't want the TC going out on a trip. anyone have any ideas?
not sure if it would help, but I can pm a VIN number if you are a tech and need to read the OASIS(not sure if it will have useful info)
