White Smoke??????

On the last two saturdays I have had to make trips of about 65 miles each direction. On both trips the truck ran like a CHAMP in both directions no power loss what so ever. However on the way home both times I have had to stop short because the 3 year old needed a pitstop . Anyways Just left the Stroke running and while it was Idling after about 4-5 mins it starts blowing greyish white smoke I can't make the truck do it anyother time. It always happens after 55-60 miles with the temp outside dropping pretty quick and the AC on and right after adding Diesel Kleen. I checked all of the vitals, Oil hasn't changed nor has coolant, and I am not burning fuel any faster. Today it cleared up quick just by letting the truck cool off for about 3-4 mins last week didn't let the truck cool down until we got home. Am I just being paranoid since I bought a Buy back or is there something going on. EGR Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks Rob I just wish it would happen during the week or atleast be able to make it happen during normal driving.


On a side note I am planning on changing the fuel filters tomorrow. Could that be the cause

My truck did this once before. I took it in for a service and then the next day leaving school I was waiting to get out of the parking lot and I noticed some non black smoke and I thought it was someone else but it was me. Well I was like sweet and I put my truck in neutral and pegged it and it started puring out this nasty smoke that just dusted everything around me. Well it cleared up and never had it happen again. Maybe you got some water in your fuel or something.

Normally I wouldn't be concerned but anything remotely close to white coming out of my exhaust scares me. I just wish I could make it happen again or that it would just stop. We will see after today.

I would venture to say something along the lines of your turbo... If you have a bad seal in your turbo, it will leak and burn the oil, causing white smoke...

It went away after I changed the fuel filters. They didn't look that bad but you never know. I did a couple of medium distance trips this past weekend and can't get it to repeat so that must have been the problem. Thanks all for the thoughts.
