odd smoke issue

Well back when I bought my truck It was all stock, then I got an exhaust. Out of no where my truck started to put out whitish smoke that smelt like burnt oil, weeks later I tuned it with Vivian's looney.. It still persisted, I returned it to stock and it still did the same thing. I then did my oil cooler and EGR delete and problem went away, then re-tuned the truck and no issues

Fast forward 20k miles problem free and tuned by truck source diesel, I noticed today that same smoke is back when i start driving at 1200 rpms the smoke puffs out then it goes away.

What on earth could this be? I've been told possible injector or injector o-ring issue or turbo seal issue, but I dont think those issues would be this sporadic do you? I also buzz tested my injectors and it passed flying colors. Also monitored all injectors in a contribution test and al were with spec not dipping or going below 0. FICM voltage never below 48v even cold cranking

I just changed my oil to Rotella 5w40 and I always use Rev x fuel additive.

All I know is when my injector o-rings went it was not a little white smoke. It was like a fog machine set up shop in the exhaust. Then flooded the engine. I don't have a clue. I hope you find out though. Good luck man.

Does it generate any smoke at idle? What does the smoke smell like?

Probably turbo journal bearings. That's what mine ended up being. It progressively got worse until it started blowing blue smoke all the time and misting oil on my toy hauler under load. Then, I had to change my turbo.

weird, ill keep an eye on it though. Still dont think it could be from switching to full synthetic oil? its completely gone now, and no smoke at idle.

No, not at all. Mine did that off and on for a while, too. Who knows, if it isn't doing it now, I wouldn't worry about it.
