My EGTs are too high...any ideas?
Well, let me start by saying that my truck hasnt been run for a few days due to it not starting, earlier today I put a new glow plug relay on it, but...before I did that, I crossed the terminals on my old one to get it started (that might have not been the smart thing to do?) so I could drive it to the parts store, just crusing at 35 mph or so my EGTs are around 700-800 degrees...they have been staying at least 3 or 4 hundred degrees hotter than normal...I also noticed when I punch it, I get a haze of white smoke out the exhaust that used to be black smoke?...seems to run alright though, doesnt make any awful noises or loss of boost or power (as far as I know, I babied it back home after it started getting hot)...so any ideas on why the EGTs are high?
ps temps are normal at an idle, just a little throttle and its shooting up there though
Thanks for any input
