Burning Oil

I am burning oil in my 7.3. I burnt 6 quarts in 70 miles. I changed the turbo today. Still seems to be burning it. I installed reman injectors in July. White smoke is comming out the tail pipr until it gets warm. Any suggestions?

white smoke what does it smell like?

How many miles on your truck?When was the last fuel filter change?Why did you change the injectors?

You could have lost a oring on the injectors and burning the oil that way.Not sure

02 333k miles Lots of mods Windowed block
08 29k reg 6 speed 4X4 utility bed stock

I have 175000 on my truck. I had number 7 injector go out. I changed them all at that time because of the mileage. The smoke smells like burn oil. Is there any way to tell which injector o ring is bad?

Did you ever find out what the cause was? I'm looking at purchasing a 97 that does the same. Wondering if I should stay away from it.

It is All Well

I had to replace my turbo and the seals on all my injectors. I had previously replaced my injectors with rebuilt injectors. And the seals had broke down. I replaced the seals with original ford seals.
