Question about CCV system

On my 02 is there a way to disconnect the CCV off the intake and run the truck for a few weeks to see if it is causing my smoking issue in the mornings? Also I don't want to make a mess in the engine bay if the tube is disconnected! And I don't want to spend anymore money on a ventilation kit either. Thanks

I ran a 5/8 hose off the valve cover dog house under the truck back past the doors, mine is a crew cab . So the hose was about 6 ft long and ended near the tank. I plugged the hole in the intake with silicone sealer. My intercooler is clean but I will see a little smoke coming out the hose. If your exhaust is smoking you have excessive blow by which would = worn valve guides or bad rings and low compression . Possible worn injectors. I had #6 smoking at idle but was clean burning above 13000 rpms. I changed the injector yesterday and no more smoke.

My lowest compression is 390psi in number 5. The rest of the cylinders are at 420. 8 brand new injectors. Checked excessive blow by out the oil fill tube and just a light stream of smoke and that's all, the oil fill cap didnt move at all.

What does it mean why you have a bit of blow by... like it will slowly move the cap off the filler tube?

The cap will just sit there, when you take the cap off the tube a little smoke comes out, but with the cap upside down it doesn't move a bit

Then you're good. A little smoke is normal.

And smoke at start up is also normal. It should clear up fairly quickly though.

Oh no it doesn't clear up until high idle is done with and the engine has really warmed up, and sometimes it misses too.

Blueish white smells like raw fuel. Sometimes when I start it I get a nice whiff of burnt oil that comes out the tail pipe but only when cold though never hot. Also if I am rolling while the engine is already hot, and I put truck into neutral and rev it a big cloud of blue comes out. I do have some oil consumption too about 1-3/4 quarts every 4000 miles.

Well the white smoke that smells like raw fuel is, you guessed it, raw fuel. This is most likely from a faulty component in the GP system. A little white puff is okay at first start-up, but excessive smoke means there is a problem.

The blue smoke is definitely oil. If I had to guess, I would say injector o-ring that did not seal correctly. Your compression numbers look too good for it to be a ring.
