96 7.3 blue smoke when cold and rich exhaust all the time

Sure would like some straight forward solid information, seems post go all over the place and dont stay specific to issue or never see solution. My 96 has 310000 and running strong , no problem starting, idles like new, and strong as ever. Just more smoke than usual on start up and has eye burning exhaust most all the time , even after interstate run , stop to stretch and "GEEZE" she stinks! Hate to throw injectors at it even though its WAY past time HA just would like some straight talk to guide me in the right direction. Thanks

I am having the same issue, got a 94.5 that has 25K miles on a rebuild. Truck is not my daily driver, has no codes, no mods, and the exhaust actually drips diesel at times.

Are you guys experiencing more fuel consumption than average? Could need an injector rebuild from leaky injector cups, hope someone can point you in an easier cheaper fix, and sorry we have a hard time not derailing threads here

Btw to the both of you welcome to the org

Can be any number of things, low compression, sticking injectors, not enough air....

My apologies to the original poster, I have the same issue, not trying to thread jack you

My fuel economy is horrible. The truck was sitting in a yard, one head in the bed, and a pile of parts on the floor. The block was cracked on #6 cylinder. I started the rebuild, had the block sleeved on all 8 holes, and ran out of time. Went to a good shop, and it hurt, but was done right including a new turbo. I had a new down pipe installed while i was doing it, and cut off the cat. That was 6 years ago, truck started running ritch about a year later

I have been searching threads and had decided my most likely issue is the 19 year old injectors. Computer wise I don't know what could be off, map sensor? CPS?

Any help would be great

If you're getting bad smelling exhaust, check your compression before looking at anything else.
