2000 7.3 crazy white smoke after injector change, no boost
My old man bought a 2000 f250 at an auction a few weeks back. It didn't start, so he got it for a fairly good deal, or so he thinks. Whenever he plugged it in, it would start, but if it was 70 degrees out and wasn't plugged in, no start.
I replaced all 8 glow plugs, the glow plug relay, the under valve harnesses and 2 injectors that were bad. The air filter was black and completely clogged so I changed that too.I went to change the fuel filter and when I drained the fuel bowl, what came out was clear all the way through and smelt like alcohol, not diesel. Now the truck will start and die within like 5 seconds. Sometimes it will start up great, but it continuously DUMPS white/grey smoke while idling and driving. Builds a max of 3psi boost, and won't accelerate past 50-55 mph.
Not sure if it's a turbo issue, I may be wrong so correct me if I am, but I believe a bad or leaking turbo can cause the white smoke. Maybe I messed something up when I work on it, not sure.
I cleaned his EBP sensor and tube, seemed to help a little but not much. ICP sensor had oil in it, could this be an issue?
I did put it down to the station and filled it with diesel and a fuel additive to get diesel back through it instead of whatever the previous owner was using.
Any ideas or suggestions would be great, I did what I could do, but without access to a scanner to pull codes, I'm at a loss.
