Injector issues?

Well this is my first post so bare with me. I have a 03 6.0 that started to steam real bad, so i checked the intake and sure enough there was coolant in it. so I bought the IPR gen 2 delete kit with new oil cooler. I flushed it the best I could before starting the job. Played hell tryin to get the damn turbo off!! while I was in there I did the blue spring kit and got the blue egr hose and cleaned the turbo. When I was done I filled it up with Cat elc. Started it up and let it run for a while and it never quit smokin!! now its a grey smoke and not just steam. Im wondering if I might have a bad injector? No codes thrown so not sure how to tell if it is or what one. Glad to finally be a Member of the ORG!!

Welcome to the ORG! Definitely sounds like an injector stuck open. Does it stop after it gets to operating temps?

You will continue to see some moisture after the egr delete. I would suggest you charge then load test your batteries. Then monitor your ficm to try to rule that out first.

No it doesn't stop. I drove it around for a while and it drove ok but when I would stop at a sign it would idle rough.

Batteries need to be replaced but the ficm is new.

Bad batteries kill ficms, even new ficms are not immune. I was only suggesting that some of the "smoke" you are seeing could be the excess moisture in the system that will eventually go away. After an oil cooler install it will take a good ride to purge the oil and fuel system of air. A monitor is essential on the 6.0, hope this helps.

Thanks for the input I definitely need to get the batteries! I think I burned it all off but maybe not. If it was a injector how could I test to see which one?

Do you have a way to monitor live data? If you feel like an injector is overfueling, you may see a rise in oil level. If so, you can pull the glow plugs and turn the engine over to see which hole pushes out excessive fuel. If you feel that is the case and plan to do that, we can give you more info. You can also probe the injector pins to check the coils, to see they are in spec. Normally these problems show codes, generic code readers are not guaranteed to give you correct readings. Make sure your injector plugs and ficm plugs are secure.

Could the batteries be under powering the ficm and cause this?

Bad batteries can cause injector problems yes. Do you have a monitor in the truck?
