I've got blue smoke coming out of my exhaust, but its not consistent.
Truck is a 2000 F250 7.3l ZF6, 92k on the clock, extended cab short bed with a few bolt-on mods:
Edge Evolution level 2
MBRP 4" turbo-back exhaust
RiffRaff's 6637 intake, HPx, FRx (+10psi spring) & CCV
Saturday afternoon I re-routed the CCV so I wouldn't get the smell or wisps of smoke. I had it routed along the frame until where it turns up at the tank/rear axle. Decided to add an air/water separator from an air compressor inline and route it back to the intake. I used the 3/4" oil/fuel hose the riffraff supplies with their kit that I had previously installed (possibly kinked?). Cranked it up Saturday night and drove 40 miles. About halfway through, a car got behind me and I noticed some smoke. I pulled over and checked under the hood, but didn't see anything out of the ordinary. When I climbed back in the cab, I noticed the entire parking lot looked like it had been fumigated. I checked everything the next morning and no leaks and all fluids are at the normal level. Drove it Sunday for a bit and it would start smoking (this is when I noticed it was blue), I parked it to run in the store it would smoke a bunch when started back up. Left the store & got on it pulling onto the highway and it left a cloud of blue smoke thick enough to slow traffic. Drove another 40 miles and this time it would have a faint amount of smoke while cruising or accelerating (to the point I didn't always see it), but would fumigate as soon as I let off after accelerating.
Sorry for the long description, wanted to be as thorough as possible. I've done some reading online and I'm leaning towards injector o-rings or turbo seals. However, the fuel bowl & down pipe are both clean. Any other ideas? How do I go about testing them or do you just replace them with fingers crossed?
