Okay, so yesterday I was pulling into my driveway when I got a very strong odor of something burning and I lifted the hood with the engine still running and I saw smoke pumping from underneath the intake tubing of the CAI. I looked into it further and I found a disconnected hose. It was the very short hose that runs from the top left engine cover into the bottom of the intake tube closest to the turbo.
Is this tube designed for something like the crankcase ventilator? Whether it is or not, is it normal that there is white/bluish smoke to be coming out of that hose? I know these are high compression engines and the engine has to breathe, but does it sound like I have blowby? Or maybe excessive blowby??????
I reconnected this hose and no more smoke and the truck seems to run fine, and runs strong still. But now I'm worried that there is smoke getting sucked in along with the air from the intake.
