95 P-Stroke White Smoke Issue

Hi all,

I'm new to the site and I've researched the forums the best I can but haven't seen the issues that I'm experiencing with my truck. First of all I've got a 1995 7.3 stoker with a built tranny, 3" downpipe to 4" staightpipe, air intake, TS 6-pos...pretty stock.

So the truck was running just fine until last week I started it up right after I shut her down and it started to smoke white. Now it started to smoke white on startup and clear up but had a strange lope while idleing....similar to being cammed but its not. Currently, it will smoke during idle at the stoplight in drive or in park with the same lope. It drives completely fine however....no white smoke at all. I've pulled the exterior valve cover pigtails and they look good, the fuel filter is fine, the ICP works when I pull it off while running, there are no leaks anywhere, I pulled the chip and had no effect, disconnected the batteries...ect. The turbo spins fine with no abundance of oil, and the CPS was replaced 2 months ago. I'm going to pull the IPR this weekend and possibly the valve covers to make sure the injector connector pigtails are not loose.

Does anyone else have any suggestions???

This is my only vehicle so I obviously need this thing up and running. I'm just concerned with why it smokes badly at idle with the strange lope but once it's going down the road, it drives perfectly with no white smoke or loss of power. Any help would be appreciated!

Perhaps you have an injector/injector O-Ring leak, or if you are down on compression in 1 cylinder, it would "lope" at idle, but pressure may come up to ignite the diesel at higher load/rpm.
