Blue oil means smoke. Is there any oil coming out of the exhaust?

he means blue smoke means oil. check your oil levels maybe overfilled or maybe your growing some oil. if im not mistakin it can also be injector issues.

LOL that was a tung twister.. Anyways I was thinking I might have a bad injector somedays but its hard to tell runs starts drives idles smooth well I shouldnt say that every now and then my rpms bounce up and down stairing at the needle sooo maybe it could be an injector I noticed it after I got my oil changed I put full synthetic ams oil 5w 40 so it could be a little over filled as for oil in my tail pipe thats a big no what do you mean when you sayin "growing some oil"

By "growing oil" he means is oil getting into the crankcase when the truck regens?

thats a good question would it possibly have a bad dpf system?
the truck has 205 000 kms on it everything is basically bone stock it has had all the upgrades from the dealer recalls ect under warranty thats about it untill I get the extra cash I'm planning on doing some stuff next month like a dpf delete oil cooler delete egr system delete h&s mini maxx s&b intake and the intercooler tube replace (I think thats what it is that tube that goes really skinny) and I'm going to do a 4'' turbo back flo pro exhaust just cause I always have the worry driving it I just bought it 1500 kms ago I had a 6.0 before I bullet proofed but the motor was getting tired.

All of the deletes you are talking about are really going to help you motor breathe alot better...except for the oil cooler delete. You really don't want to delete that component.

How come? I've heard of them failing quiet often we had a company truck it failed 3 times under warranty the last one failed after being replaced 15 000 kms before and its failure caused what we believe is a crank bearing it chirps like a bird now and it just happened to fail at 161 180kms just 1180 kms off warranty now ford wont cover it and it needs a rebuild. I thought you could delete these on the 6.4 I wasnt too sure though..

If you meant the EGR and coolers yes you can definitely delete them but I don't think anyone would even suggest deleting the oil cooler. They aren't really all that common of a problem on the 6.4's in fact from my research they are fairly rare. I guess some guys have had issues with them but rather than deleting the oil cooler I would look into a coolant filter. It will catch alot of the stuff that could potentially plug an oil cooler
