white smoke..

my truck is blowing white smoke when warmed up. it runs fine no codes. the turbo is brand new. it seems the oil is being sucked out of the crankcase vent into the turbo. the filter was dirty so i then ran the truck with no air filter and the problem still there. please help. thanks.

If you have white smoke its more then likely blow by. What does it smell like fuel, coolant etc? White smoke is unburned fuel either cause by over fueling (pres reg.) or cold motor (normal) or even glow plugs failing to preheat the motor. You also could have a sticking injector alowing fuel to comtinue to leak into the cylinder.

White smoke can be coolant. Its not from over fueling though

If it smells like fuel thats a good place to start. I have the same issue and have replaced all my injectors and still have the smoking. So my next step is the fuel pressure regulator. White smoke is not always coolant. You can definitely have white smoke from overfueling, why do you think diesels smoke at start up before they reach operating temp? You can also have white smoke from it running lean as well. If the exhast smells like fuel why would you assume its coolant?? I have the exact same issue and have no coolant loss what so ever so before you speak know what your talking about. Talk to any diesel mechanic, hell even google white smoke and you will see. Black smoke is for partially burned fuel (not fully combusted). Unburned and partially burned fuel are two different things. If your not sure take a kerosene torpedo heater and you will see that it heavy white smoke when the fire goes out and the fuel is still flowing and it smells heavily of kerosene!!
