DON'T STAND AROUND THE TAILPIPE!

I'm not sure what's happening. Somebody can probably help you out, but I think they will need a little more info. All I can think of at the moment is to run some diagnostics on it, maybe even a compression check.

Does the problem go away after running for while? Is the check engine light on? If it is on check your codes if not:You should check for rust and change your fuel fitlers. If there is rust this is a major porblem that can only be fixed with a new fuel tank, a new set of injectors, and the whole system being flushed. If no rust there may be either bad wiring to an injector or a bad injector(or several and might not always set a code if it is the injector itself and not defective in the solinoid itself).

59,000 miles on the truck. Well I am thinking maybe egr valve is clogging or the turbo needs cleaning. As already mentioned is your check engine light on. If so pull the codes. Let us know what they are and then we can help you further. I am sure Marc, or Scuffy, or Stroketech will be here to give you more advice.

How ever 59,000 miles means your engine is still covered by warranty. 5 year/100,000 mile warranty that covers the engine.

Usually blueish colored smoke is engine oil buring. Check your engine oil level as well.

I'm no expert, but I have a theory. The crankcase breather tube vents into the intake. Extended idle periods can cause an accumulation of oil to build up in the intercooler over time just from the oil vapors from the breather. This was especially bad on the 7.3 engines. I have seen this happen quite often. Once you get on it and run it hard for a bit at high boost levels, you force that oil out and it's burned off. Then they run clean for a while until someone babies it again or lets it idle for extended periods.

We had a 7.3 that would puff blue smoke something terrible. Then we rerouted the breather tube and after a week or so, the truck no longer smokes out the tailpipe.

I hope this is your problem. Otherwise you may be looking at a bad turbo seal leaking oil.
