Tell me what I did wrong...
Picked up some bad fuel and had a lot of debris in tank so I had to drop the tank and have it cleaned, decide this was the right time to complete the "hutch" and "harpoon" mods and add a pre pump filter and fuel/water separator.
Mods and cleaning went well and the truck went back together, rolled the key forward to prime the fuel system and listened for the fuel pump to cycle 4 times then fired the truck up with 4 gallons of diesel in the tank. About 2 minutes after the start up the truck began to idle rough and got louder and louder I first thought it was the air working out and then realized it was getting worse so I shut it down just before it stopped running by itself... In this time the fuel pump had failed and stopped flowing altogether, I replaced it and filled the fuel bowl back up and she started right away.
We cleaned up our tools and my friend poured in 16oz of diesel kleen before I could tell him to wait for me to fill up, so I drove about 3 miles to the closest station to fill the tank with diesel and on the way she started blowin white smoke bad and worse at idle, after filling the tank completely I drove 50 miles and it still smokes BAD at idle and much less when the engine is revved!
Did I kill an injector when it ran out of diesel? Was the heavy mix of diesel kleen bad? Will this clear up if it is the diesel kleen?
