Lots of blue smoke

Why is my 02 blowing so much smoke all of a sudden? It has never done this before. I don't have the ebpv anymore I deleted that and put a banks power elbow on it. Now when it turns over there is no knocking everything is normal nice and smooth when its warming up. The temp is about 30 in the morning in Anchorage right now. It also has the banks six gun and stinger plus package too. I had this truck in Vermont before too and it never has done this at all.
Thanks for any help.

Chris

indication of oil. i dont know much about banks stuff, when you deleted the ebpv are you sure the oil areas were blocked properly (dotn really know what im talking abour here, but iirc there is an oil port to block...)

check your fuel bowl, what color is the fuel in there? could be that you lost an injector o-ring.

Okay, I plugged the truck in and it didn't smoke anymore. It only smokes when cold. And also it will not smoke once I start moving the truck and depressing the throttle. Is it just fuel, glow plugs, relay, injectors? Any more help please. It doesn't smell like oil it smells like excess fuel. Thanks for the help.

you may have some glow plugs going bad but the fuel filter could be a culprit as well

if you have a tune on your truck when you start it in the morning there is a lot more fuel going to the motor than what would get there if the truck was stock try it stock and see if it smokes less i would guess it is from a lot of fuel on start up and a cold motor hints when you plug it in its hotter and can ignite the fuel better

Okay today it was 45 this morn and it still smoked. I have on level two on the six gun. Also the stinger plus kit already has a preprogrammed chip for 90hp plus I have the six gun too. But I had this truck in RI in this same weather 45-35 degrees and it never did it with all the same stuff on it that I have on it now. Why would it be my fuel filter also I just changed the fuel filter about 1000 miles ago? And do you guys think it could be a injector o ring what is a tattle tale the orings are worn?

The guy up here wants to charge me 1150 to do 8 new glows and new injector orings. I'm strapped for cash right now so I don't know what to do. It has to be fuel because the warmer it is the less it smokes and also vice versa. Also the truck has 126,500 on it. Thanks.

Is there any general basic maintenance things that I could do to maybe pinpoint the problem so I can narrow it down to something? I don't have any special tools up here on the base so it would have to go to a shop to get fixed.
