2001 7.3,programmer and after market turbo.
have not had time to look in to it yes i am self employed and can not shut it down yet.
any way it smokes like a train in the morning or any time i let it cool down some.and has a miss. but can drive it with no problem, but as it gets to max temp it quits smoking and missing and just carry's it normal haze. i have 153,000 miles on her. with a programmer at 75 hp setting. any way i did take the oil fill cap off today and have back presser coming out of the crank. steady normal flow then a small puff consistent like a piston stroke. which makes me lean toward a hole in the piston. but like i said when it gets wormed up it runs fine. so i am stumped and hope it is something not so bad. what do you guys think? and if i do need to do a total rebuild where would be the best place to look. i will beef it up if i need to rebuild it.would no more when i get time to do a compression test on it. just needing some thoughts to look at when i get under the hood. and the smoking is just like the glow plugs are not working on a cold morning but it dose fire right up. so i guess Mary Christmas to me. like i need this now.
Sounds like glow plugs or glow plug relay . I don't think you have a major problem . That being said , do a compression test , that will tell you allot .
