00 Smoke Questions.

Ok I know alittle about diesel's but lets see what u guys think. Here are my mods and questions. 1. Stock truck with 113000 smokes ok 2. Installed t.s 6pos switch. Great power and alittle more smoke. 3. Diy intake. Less smoke.
4. Installed SouthBend Clutch and Replaced exhaust with 5"Mbrp no smoke
5. So here are my questions, In the mornings white smokes for about 1 min.
Temp was about 20, Went down the Interstate, truck was at operating temp. Flipped the chip to 100hp and I seen white smoke coming from exhaust. Also I have extreme turbo surge. Could this be the cause?? I know it will white smoke in the cold temps but I wasnt sure about the 70mph white smoke= Can anyone chime in??

Something ain't right my friend. White smoke at 70mph, you got something wrong I don't know exactly what so I will let some one else take a hit at this.

No CEL and its just alittle smoke. Also I noticed this morning my turbo will shutter if I'm about half throttle and about 1500 rpm. I'll take some pics of the DIY intake and other mods. Otherwise the truck runs great. It doesn't burn oil and the coolant level never changes. I work as a techican at LandRover Nashville but I work an gas burners all day. This one had me stumped

I'll go out on a limb here and say I think it's going to be a map sensor?

once good and hot does engine quit smoking white smoke ,several things can cause concern , injector o-rings , low fuel pressure will cause smoke and surge , just something to think about

I talked to a ford tech today and he said that with the chip on 100hp, it was probably overheating the turbo. It only smoke for just a second and I was full throttle, engine was warm.

A map sensor may not set a code. Have them read live data, check it at idle and road test at wot.

I don't know about overheating the turbo if you're just cruising around with a little lead foot syndrome. White smoke in real cold weather on a cold motor would be because combustion temps aren't up yet, it'll stop after a minute or two.

I was also told that white smoke can be injector issues. The default to white smoke always seems to be coolant entering the combustion process.

Put it on stock and do whatever you were doing to get the white smoke and see what happens?

The surge you experienced, was it amplified in the higher horsepower settings? If so I had the same problem with my truck, it ended up being a bad injector. After replacing the injector the surge went away, and so did the white smoke. But at lower speeds at any horse setting it ran like a charm, and above about 65-70mph it ran fine as well. hope you get something from that.

Gord.
