Check your coolant level to see how much you are using. It's probably the EGR Cooler leaking.

well after looking into it more i took all my intake tubing off and found some shaft play in my turbo and after watching the smoke ill say its gray and not white but i did notice that my coolant level isn't super low its about 1/2 inch below the min and i have been keeping an eye on it so my game plan is to buy the ipr gen 2 egr delete and do a flush on the truck and look for a turbo rebuild kit is that a good start.

First question is whether or not you have a monitoring system? You will see that about half the people on here that have smoke issues is because of their injectors or FICM. I have been the victim of each of these culprits.

Here's an example of what two bad injectors looks like. When I was trying to diagnose the issue, everyone guaranteed me it was coolant via a bad EGR. Three years later my FICM went bad and had the same indicators. Also, you NEED a monitoring system ASAFP just so you can keep tabs on stuff like this and your oil cooler. You don't need an Edhe... a Scangauage II works nearly as well ( not as sexy as the CTS) and it costs $160 but is worth its weight in gold. My $.02

It doesn't do it at all anymore. With injectors, it does it whether it's warm or cold. With the FICM, it tends to only do it when the oil is cold.
