Puking white smoke
Late 99 F350
So I am thinking (hoping) this is a result of a total rookie mistake on my part, but will give the full rundown.
Current known issues:
-IPR is leaking, proper deep socket should be here tomorrow to rebuild
-Discovered ICP has think layer of oil yesterday
On Monday my Hydra showed up and after having some initial issues got it functioning properly. Discovered after a test run, my oil pan was leaking from the dipstick opening. Repaired the leak, and found a left over quart of two stroke oil from one of my bikes (cheap 7-11 stuff) which I added to what I thought was a full tank, but wound up being just under half. Forgot it was my other truck I filled the previous day. Been running 2 stroke for the last 8 or so fill ups with no issue.
4" exhaust was installed on Thursday (truck hadn't moved since Tuesday), and after a couple runs down the street noticed it smoking under moderate (and up) throttle.
Finally got to mess with it today and at start up it puffs black and white smoke. While idling it will smoke and if I give it throttle it will sometimes start smoking excessively when it drops back to base idle. Drove it a bit and it smokes almost all the time. Once in awhile it will actually run clean briefly but will quickly change to smoking again.
I didn't get any codes, and ran a buzz test which all injectors passed. Tried a few different tunes, stock setting, and even pulled the chip. All methods resulted in the same excessive smoke.
Truck went from running perfectly fine to smoking like a steam engine after doing the exhaust which makes no sense. Figured it may be a timing thing with my adding the 2 stroke oil just prior to exhaust. Filled the tank tonight and seemed marginally better after idling 15 minutes.
Injector o-rings were done 3 years ago, as well as an injector. Turbo (stock) seems to be fine as well. Hoping my over diluting with the oil is the cause of this.
