NEW GUY NEEDS HELP!!

Hello all! I have heard a ton of great things about this site and I hope that someone here can help me. I have a 2005 Ford 6.0 PowerStroke. It was blowing a ton of grayish smoke out of the tail pipe alond with some fluid. i replaced the EGR cooler and oil cooler. Truck started and ran fine for about 2 minutes and now is doing the same thing. Tons of grayish smoke and no power on take off. You can press the pedal down while in park and get it to about 2000 rpms and it seems to be struggling a bit. If you hold it for a few seconds it will go up in rpms and seem to smooth out. Cleaned the EGR valve really well. Still does it. if you start the truck when it has been sitting it will idle smooth and no smoke till it runs for a couple of minutes. Any ideas????? thanks in advance for any help!

What is the fluid? Oil, fuel, clear like water? Any identifiers? Green? (shouldnt be - but need some help here).

Thanks for your reply. The fluid appears to be oil, or antifreeze mixed with the soot of the exauhst. while the engine is running it is really thin, but once you shut it down and let it sit for and hour or so it appears to be thicker like oil. It does not seem to be blowing much fluid now after changing the EGR cooler, it may just be what is left in the exauhst blowing out. it is smoking really bad though. Would it be possible that when the EGR cooler went that it may have clogged the vains in the turbo and this is causing my issues?

No expert but I'm wondering if you don't have a head gasket issue.

i had wondered the same thing at first but it is not building any pressure in the Degass bottle and it really runs to smooth i think for it to be a head gasket issue.

Yes, everything on this truck is 100% stock. that is an idea that i had not thought of. Do you think that i should try to remove the system and clean it?

Well I'm not an expert buy I might try unbolting the exhaust at the end of the down pipe before it gets to the kitty and see if the exhaust is dry to that point. Maybe start it and see if the exhaust coming out stays dry.

Seems to me like a way to check it that won't cost much in terms of time and a $0 diag.



If I'm wrong maybe one of the techs will chime and and tell me so.

What symptoms will a faulty ICP sensor have? Now this thing will not start or stay running. My Solus Pro scanner detected an ICP fault. When it does run it has some surging and lack of power. I am thinking that maybe i did not run this thing long enough after EGR and OIL Cooler replacement to get all residual fluid out of the system and all the air out of the oil system. any ideas?
