Unhappy white smoke and engine squeal

Started her up this morning and it felt like there was some unusual vibration and light squealing. White smoke was also constantly coming from the exhaust. After driving which I had to the smoke has seemed to stop but the squealing remains. So does anyone know what I might be looking at? Turbo or head gaskets or something else? Any info would be great. Thanks for taking the time to read

Depending on how cold it is, i know my truck smokes a lot about 2 minutes after starting for 4 or 5 more minutes, this is the condensation burning out of the exhaust. When the temps is below 35

Now that i have went to a straight turbo back i get no smoke as there's no place for condensation to puddle.

Squealing can be a lot of things but if you haven't had any issues or anything till all the sudden it can be just the serpentine belt.

You can take a can of WD40 and while the engine is running if tis squeeling spray a little on the belt, it will stop squeealing. This means the belt is dry and needs to be replaced.

If it keeps squealing there's a lot of other little things to do to test but it would be a really long post. Try those and see what happens.

Thanks for the really fast reply! It wasn't cold this morning it was probably in the high 60s. I have a 4inch Turbo back as well. I put a superchips programmer on it on Tuesday but its set on economy and haven't really driven that much. Could that be an issue? I'm going to take more time to look at it later today and report back. Thanks again

My truck had some blue/gray smoke this morning on start-up and I just loaded a tune last night, I'm guessing it's unburned fuel. But I agree with MMandley, most likely it is condensation and the squeal is probably the belt or belt tensioner.


Btw FL Offroad, I don't even know you and I hate you. Ah I'm kidding, I lived in Stuart for several years and recently moved to Houston where it was 31* this morning! And I miss fishin Round Island & Harbor Branch
