Seeing Smoke ...

So, @ 50K miles, I'm noticing some smoke ..


1) When "getting on it" (like 20 psi Boost & 3K RPM), it'll leave a puff of black smoke when it really starts to throttle-up, then it stops smoking.

2) On a cold morning @ start up, it'll puff out a cloud of blueish-white smoke that has that sweet diesel smell.


I run an Edge Insight ... all temps are in spec & hadn't had any codes in a long time. International 6.0 runs good overall. What is the smoke trying to tell me?

My understanding is this is normal. I forget the reason for the white/blueish smoke on cold mornings but everyone says it normal.

I'd say your good as long as you delta's are good. The blueish smoke is just due to the cold cylinder temps.

I thought the sweet smell was coolant. I'd Pull out your egr valve and see if its wet in there?
