Although a friend posted this, that is my truck. I have 3 of them and have had many others. All 7.3's This is the ONLY one that does this. On the same morning my ohter 2 trucks started with only a few seconds of smoke.
This is not normal diesel behavior.
I have taken it to Ford to have it scanned. They told me #3 injector was slamming so I replaced it. No change. I have been told it is a different injector, injector cups, flex plate, exhaust leak (I DO have an uppipe leak), rods, piston etc.
I don't want to keep fixing things (like the up pipes) if I am just going to have to replace the engine. I would like to know where a GOOD diesel guys is near Tampa that can actually tell me what the problem is, not just guess.
