white smoke on start up hydrolocking 6.0
2004 early 6.0,
Intermittent issue hydrolock then alot of white smoke for a min then clears up. No codes, no misses runs perfect just smokes. Every thing is rebuilt, replaced, or removed. ARP studs, 175cc stock injectors, egr and cooler delete. I have been chasing the gremlins out of the new engine thinking it my be an injector issue. I do have sludge on valve cover oil cap its white/yellow not sure if thats normal. When I open the cap when running no blow by, but once it warms up seems like there is steam coming out. Not sure it thats normal
just changed the oil no shavings the oil was a med brown color. Only had 2000 miles on it. I pulled the glow plugs to see if they were we but they were covered in fresh oil.turned the motor over and all the cylinders misted oil. Oil coming from the glow plug opening being at the bottom of the head.
Any imput would be greatly appreciated!
