2001 7.3 has alot of oil in intercooler
My 2001 Excursion 7.3 has alot of oil in the intercooler, enough that it is blowing oil through it and into the intake of the engine which is producing blue smoke and burnt oil smelling smoke. Only smokes on deceleration, that I can tell. Have replaced factory compressor wheel with wicked wheel about 10,000 miles ago, had no problems then other than a little side to side play in turbo. Turbo has alot of side to side play now, probably 1/4 to 1/2 ".
Could excess wear in Turbo cause "blow by" into intercooler? Engine runs great, no misses or anything noticible other than smoke. I do have a six position chip "TS" and only run it on 75 hp gain, with no towing! Suggestions please!!!!!!!!
