So I just got my truck back from the dealership 2 weeks ago. The truck went in bucking, losing power and having a rough cold start. 3 injectors were diagnosed to be bad, so I elected to replace all 8 since it had been 110k since they were last done.
About a week after I got it back the truck started smoking off idle. It is a bluish grey smoke and smells like kerosene. It lets out a huge plume when leaving from a stop. If I put the truck in high idle, it has a faint amount of constant smoke. I took it back to the dealer and they told me the turbo seals have gone bad.
I put a new turbo on the truck a few years ago and have barely 100 miles on it since the injectors so I find it quite suspect that the turbo conveniently wiped out the internal seals (or rings) right after an injector replacement. When I took it back for diagnosis of the smoke the tech did not scan the computer or run diagnostics since my edge outlook was still plugged into the OBD port. Any thoughts on if this is indeed turbo seals or is there a good possibility the tech screw up installing the injectors?
