Smoke?

Hi guys. So I'm new to the 6.4 and its DPF system. I noticed today when I took off from the light today some smoke coming out if pipe. Now it looked blue which would mean oil burning correct? But does the DPF system cause smoke as well during a regeneration? Thanks for the help.

You shouldn't see any smoke if your DPF is intact. Possibly a cracked DPF?

If your truck was in regen, then it's fine, ford released a bulletin on it. Search for "Smoke during regen" But if your truck wasn't in regen you probably have an issue.

Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

The bulletin for "smoke during Regen" is for white smoke. Because its the ash being blown out after soot is burnt into ash.

Whiteish blue smoke. Which is commonly described as blue/grey smoke. White smoke was due to moisture in the intercooler. There was a tsb on that as well.

I would like to add another question about whitish smoke.
I'm new to diesel motors so I'm a little concerned now that my truck has smoked some. Mine consist of mostly whitish smoke and lasts about five to ten minutes. Both times it's happened while driving in town. Truck didn't show regen. Not sure if I should have my truck looked at or if it could just be a moisture issue (nothing bad).

Mine would smoke occasionally with "white" colored smoke under load while not in regen.

With it deleted, all I see is black smoke now under heavy load.


It may be your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others.

Ok so maybe it was I. Regeneration mode but you can't really tell when your truck is in the mode correct? Since I have posted this question I have not seen anymore smoke
