Exclamation Smoke!!!!! Help!!!!!

SMOKE...HELP!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2001 Ford F350 7.3 help... I dont have enough experience with diesels to know what I am lookin at. On the drivers side of the engine. On top of the valve cover toward the rear, there is a black box (approx 10 inches long) that sits on top of the valve cover. On the front of the box there is a small black rubber tube that is approximately 1/2 inch in diameter. Should this be hooked to something????? When I start my truck and let it idle, exhaust smoke pours out of it. I just did the Tymar filter yesterday...did I forget to hook something back up?? Go out and look at your truck and see what yours is hooked to....or tell me what I should do....Thanks in advance.

Thanks blue, I guess I must have misplaced that tube when I did the Tymar or the guys misplaced it when they did the WW install. Nonetheless, thank you again....will it be ok to drive to work tomorow not hooked up? dark here so i cant fix it tonight. Also, seems like i need to lengthen this hose to hook it to the intake tube? And, is there a fitting in the black (stock) intake tube, i lifted it up, and cant see a hole, maybe I have to take the intake tube off to find it??

Yah, you'll be okay - just might get ur headcover a lil dirty

Like a couple of other guys have said - they do the CCV mod - which just puts a longer hose on it and routes it to the back of the truck glad we could help!

Did anyone think about the hole in the tube on the intake side... He is or could be sucking raw unfiltered air in there...

I was wondering the same thing. Do you still have the stock plastic piece that connects the two intake pieces, or did you take it out and add some pvc or exhaust tubing? Like csi said, if you didn't replace it, your turbo's sucking dirty air throught the hole where that hose it supposed to be connected to. Just get you about 6" of 4" exhaust tubing and use it as the connector. Then run the hose down the frame rail

Well, I guess I thought he'd be smart enough to realize that if it WAS supposed to vent into the intake, that now since it ISNT venting INTO the intake, that he should plug the hole.....

I'm pretty sure that that is also covered in the CCV mod writeup...
