Another White Smoke Thread
First off, I want to apologize for another white smoke thread... I can tell through my research that white smoke has been a hot topic.
I bought my first diesel a few weeks ago (details in signature) with 180k on it. I've put around 1000 (unloaded) miles on it and it runs like a champ. Thursday morning I went and had the oil changed, fluids checked, etc. Took it home and installed my new Spartan tuner & Flo-Pro CAT/DPF delete.
Now after the truck warms up, it pours white smoke out of the exhaust when idling and just as I'm taking off from a stop. I used the tuner to monitor the EGR valve, and it seems to be opening and closing properly.
I've checked my fluids and they all look good and are at the right levels. I'm in the middle of a bad cold and can't smell anything, but my brother said it smells like normal diesel exhaust, "or possibly oil." I'm in Texas and the high temps are reaching the mid 80s, and there isn't too much humidity.
The truck still runs strong and I haven't been able to find any other symptoms. I think the tuner & dpf delete were just a coincidence, but I wanted to include as many details as possible. As this is my first diesel, I don't know much at all about them, so any ideas/tips/tricks/or troubleshooting steps would be greatly appreciated.
