Blowing Blue Smoke

Hello all,
I just signed up on the forum a little while ago. I just installed the Edge CS Chip, MBRP Cool dual exhaust and Pure DPF delete kit on my 2008 ford F250 6.4 diesel pickup. Everything was going great until I broke one of the DPF probes for the exhust and a small black tube that goes inside this bracket for the engines DPF computer sensor (i think, will post pics). So i dont have One probe in and the small black bracket for the DPF computer thing. But will that make the truck smoke blue doing around 35 mph? I mean its like a smoke screan behind me. Im not driving the truck anymore until i get the probe and the bracket from ford. Im just curious of that will cause the truck to smoke Blue. It must be burning some oil. If you guys could give me some feedback on what you think could be the cause of this.

Also the black bracket is installed but isnt hooked up to anything cause of the broken tube and missing probe.

Thanks for all your help in advanced!!!


Tommy

It is a pressure sensor. I just replaced mine last week. $125 at Autozone. I can't tell you if that would cause blue smoke though...

It will not cause smoking issues. As long as the sensor is plugged into the wiring harness, it will not cause any issues. Make sure you have a DPF off tune loaded or it will make all kinds of funny smoke.

Most tuners offer DPF on and DPF off tunes. I've seen someone load the wrong tune by accident and wonder where the smoke is coming from. If you install a DPF on tune and remove the DPF the truck don't know what to do. I would suggest plugging the pressure sensor into the wiring harness and double checking the tune to make sure you have the DPF off or offroad tune in it.
