Intermittent white smoke........hmmm

I posted this in the problems area, but havent gotten any responses so thought i would try here.

I would like to just get some opinions on this.

Let me start off by saying, truck starts, runs, drives, sounds great and completely normal. Its studded and deleted. No coolant loss or abnormal temps.

Last week one day on break, i drove to the convenience store up the street, left it running, drove back to work and as i was backing in the parking space i noticed it puffing a little white smoke, like just a haze, not a fog cloud. Then saturday I drove it, shut it off in the drive way and was not smoking when I shut it off, then about 30 minutes later fired it up to move it to the barn to load a few things, and it was puffing white smoke again. Not alot, just a haze. Smoke smells like diesel, not coolant. Then Sunday, pulled up to house, no smoking, shut it down, then bout 5 min later fired it up to move it and there was the haze again.

Seems to do it after its shut down for a short bit and fired back up. Doesn't do it going down the road, and now that its caught my attention, i've been watching like a hawk, and only noticed it these 3 times.

Injector O-rings???

Thanks

i had a similar problem on my truck except it was smoking white on cold starts and then it would clear up. put in some rev-x and about a week later i got no more smoke and it's running perfect. must have been injectors sticking.

You can get it at Rev-X's website. or on Ebay sometimes it's cheaper.

If you want to know more than you ever really thought you could about injectors, read the link on them in my sig below. It explains what, why, how, and what to do to fix it.

It's a 58v swamps with the performance flash. Less than 8 months old. Voltage is a steady 48v as indicated on the CTS.

Ok so I figured I'd update. Took truck to stealership since I have ford ESP. They diagnosed as bad turbo seals. Rebuilt turbo, and a week and 300 miles later, still smoking. Took it back, and they checked intercooler to see if it had a crap load of oil in it. Found nothing. Now they are saying that it has low compression on all 8 cylinders. WTH?! Now just food for thought, it has only been about 3000 miles since they changed head gaskets. This truck never smoked one bit effort the head gasket job, now all of a sudden it is.

Please help with any advice or ideas.

Thanks!
