Potential problem...

Well i have a 05 f250 with new headgaskets/oil cooler 20000 miles ago, no cat, egr delete, sct tuner, and edge insight with 4 inch turbo back exhaust. I have recently noticed that when i start it up it would smoke white maybe blue then turn into black it only does it under 40 and will go away if you rev it a 3 or 4 times or just drive a 150 maybe 200 yards. And now today it was 62 out and i started it and no smoke but i reved it and it blew i believe blue smoke a few times then went away it wont do it if you get on it or anything only after sitting a work day or overnight. Also i have no trouble codes, fuel economy loss, or power loss that i notice. Sorry for the long post but im at a loss and could use the help. Thanks as always guys

Will it start rough? Have you noticed that it will take longer for the turbo to spool up?

It starts and runs perfect everytime never had a problem other than smoke. And it spoils fine as far as i notice i get on it from time to time and never notice a wait or lack of quick spoil.

run two quarts of atf in the oil and two in the tank. it will clean up stiction oil side on the injector and it will clean up spray pattern and clean up the tips. It happens to all diesels junk fuel and extended oil changes both are bad

Alright guys forgive but it's been a while since I've had a problem with my truck. Atf? Can I just get it at auto zone or whatbexactly is it? And Ive always used fords defame booster every tank seems to do good should I still put it in the tank also? Is aft usually what everyone uses for this stiction problem? Sorry for all the questions and thanks for the help this place saves me every time.

ATF automatic transmission fluid, and using it in your oil? I used rev-x. Worked great, I also switched to a synthetic oil and havent had the problem since.
