Anyone have ideas??

Hello all -

Over the last few weeks I dove into my 6.0 to delete the EGR cooler and replace the oil cooler. My engine was hydrolocked so I had to tear it down prior to the cooling system being flushed. The EGR cooler was deleted and everything was put back together, I flushed the cooling system and tore her back down to replace the oil cooler. Once completed and reassembled again, I started her up and ran it for about 25 minutes before getting into the gas a bit. When I did there was a decent plume of white/blue smoke that came from the exhaust. I walked to the back of the truck and noticed a concerning amount of oil on the ground under the exhaust pipe. WTH!! I turned the truck off and I can't help but fear something has gone terribly wrong!! Any clues as to what in the world is going on? Please tell me that this is just residual fluids that can be blown out with a nice long test drive

Any and all help would be very appriciated! Thanks, and happy new year!!

When my egr cooler blew my exhaust was filled with coolant and soot mixed. Looks just like oil but it is a little thinner. When I removed my turbo and up pipes it poured from them. I'm sure that is all it is. Have you ever owned a small block chevy that burned oil? Just a little clould of oil smoke and you can smell burnt oil 2 blocks away. I would bet its just coolant and soot, mine smoked for a little while after while it burnt out. If you have a cat and muffler that is just more fluid the exhaust can hold.
