White smoke when cold.
So yeah, been noticing my truck has some white smoke coming out the tailpipe, its not a HUGE amount like you can't see through it but it's definitely noticeable.
Mainly when its cold do I see the most but even warm when I "blip" the throttle quickly it gives a small puff.
I was leaning towards maybe egr issue? I can't tell what it smells like because I guess I don't have a lot of knowledge with coolant smells...but it doesn't smell "sweet" and it doesn't smell like diesel.
It does have a bad smell to it though that I can't stand breathing in for more than 5 seconds. Blows into the cab when windows are down and about makes you wanna get out just so you can breathe.
Any ideas? Gonna take it in for diagnostics when I can, but kinda wanted a right direction if possible?
It's an early 04, and I heard if I delete the egr I don't need to tune it since its an early 04.
If it's a headgasket issue, which I have no idea if it could be...what are the chances of dealers just using the ARP headstuds that I provide? Seems it would do more good than harm. Anyone?
