obs psd oil consumption. Where to start?
truck was 221k on it. supposed to have been rebuilt, not sure how long ago. It wont start when its warm or cold unless you have starting fluid. When it was cold and I fired it, I could see a steady cloud of greyish/blueish smoke coming from the exhaust. once it warmed up it went away. the complaint is that the truck uses like a gallon and a half of oil in 10 miles and the starting problem. checked the glow pluy relay and it is staying on for about 35-40 seconds. Im leaning towards the o-rings on the ipr sensor for the starting issue. as far as the oil consumption... possibly the turbo? Have not pulled the intake to see if its full of oil. there is no oil in the exhaust. Could bad o-rings on the injectors cause excessive oil consumption? Trying to find the problem tonight so it can be addressed tomorrow since these are my two days off work. Thanks for any help guys.
