Exclamation Need advice on this ASAP Please

I am making a decision on a powerstroke 6.0 diesel tomorrow. Here are my issues...please tell me what you think and what cost if any would be a ballpark....

2006 F250 6.0 powerstroke. 100900 miles.

Truck has been sitting for 4 weeks not running. Today I crank it and drive it to the front of the store. It smokes bad....bluish white. I run it at 2000 RPM's for 15 to 20 minutes. The smoking stops.

When I get back in the cab, I bring up the RPM's to 3500 to 4000. the smoking starts again, and when i let off back to idle....it continues to smoke for a few minutes.

Is this normal ? Or do I have issues coming on.... do I need to stay away from this truck.

Well first off i wouldnt just sit there and rev the truck that high for no real reason. Also the smoke is normal for most trucks. When they warm up they stop normally.

2000 F-250 216k- smoke much?

Possible injector issues. Whats the temp. where you are. Could be cold related, Maybe just needs oil changed. Are you buying it from a dealership? Sometimes extended warranties are worth the extra money. Having a mechanic whos experienced with the powerstroke take a look at it is worth the money.

dude it sounds like this truck is already having problems. and remember no more warranty. if it is smoking that badly at warm up then expect to put a lot of money into it. if it's been sitting for a while then there is probably a good (expensive) reason it has been. just some things to think about.

Thanks for your help

Thanks for the guys that have given me their thoughts. I have passed on this truck. Did not buy it.

Sounded like everyone was in agreement that it was going to be my cost + another 2500 to 5000 to get it running properly.

Could be injectors, ECG issue, head gasket, or other things. The Ford dealership service guy even said to pass on it, and he gets paid to fix them...ha ha

Thanks again. The search continues.......
