Taking tuned truck to dealer
Hey guys, I bought an '08 HD (bone stock) with 55k miles in April. I took the truck to the dealer a few months ago for an oil leak at teh front crank seal. They fixed it under warranty and when I got the truck back I tuned/deleted it. To my surprise the front crank seal is leaking again and I want to take it in to have them fix it right. I plan on going back to the stock tune and putting the DPF back on just to avoid the accusations that my tune caused the problem. Plus I've got some grey/blue smoke coming out of my tailpipe now and then.
My questions are these:
1) How do I explain the grey/blue smoke to them once I detune and put the DPF back on if it doesn't keep doing it?
2) Is there any telltale signs that I had a tuner on besides them plugging in a computer to my OBD2 port? (soot, etc)
3) Once I remove the tuner and go back to stock, how long after that should I wait to take it in?
