I had a customer who had the same problem. He had used starting fluid a couple of times and burned his injectors up. Truck ran fine, pulled his 16K pound trailer with no problem, no loss of fuel mileage, but smoked so bad at idle that it was embarrasing.
My guess would be that you've got at least one bad injector. is offline
