Smoke!? Help!

Alright, I have a 95 7.3L - I know it has a oil leak from the turbo somewhere. The issue is, I noticed white/greyish smoke Saturday night during a semi-cold start. Once warm, didn't do it again until I started up the truck this morning around 7am at about 50degrees, big poof of white smoke then thats it.

Driving home tonight around 930, full operating temp after about a 25 minute drive home heading up a pretty steep hill, 3/4 throttle white/greyish smoke while under hard accell, after hard accell it was gone.

Im not sure what it could be...its not coolant becuase fluid level is minute, and its not smelling of it either. Exhaust smells of diesel, no diesel fuel, no diesel coolant....

mine is doing the same thing, except if i dont let it warm up for 15 mins or so even if its 95 out when it starts to hit normal operating temp it shutters blows smoke and wont hardly do 25-30, i pull over let it warm to the N of NORMAL and its fine, back to full power....??

white puff in cold start is normal. worry if its extended. its possible your losing compression, but thats more likely if the white smoke sticks around a while.

welder - you may hav ea stuck EBPV? are you talking white or black smoke?
