white smoke after I release the throttle
Hey everyone. I noticed today while driving, that I had a bit more white smoke out of my tail pipe than usual. Its usually more at idle, but sometimes when I jump on the throttle, it starts out white, goes to grey quickly, and then BLACK. I know the blacks good, and so is grey. I was wondering, my truck has 257K on it, and maybe the FPR spring is weak? and causing the FP to be low? I checked it before and I was sitting at 48 PSI when I nailed it. My turbo is going south, and it makes a very high pitch whistle or noise when I really push the truck. I am in need of a rebuild and I did see some oil comming from the 2 halves of the turbo, next to the pedistal mounting bolts. I smell oil in the exhaust pipe too. so I am assuming that most of the smoke is comming from the turbo spitting the oil. Am I correct? I am gonna do the BB on the FPR spring tommorow and see if it helps.
