A little worried (white smoke content)
Alright, so I am a little worried. I have been reading all the "white smoke threads" after searching the forums here and my problem is still not answered. I am running the H&S mini maxx with a DPF delete and S&B cold air intake. Recently, I started to notice white smoke after I start up the truck and when I rev it while in park. When I rev it up in park, its mixed with black smoke as well. I don't beat on the truck and I have the mild tune set to mild as well and I usually stays there unless I want better mileage on the freeway in which case I turn it up one or two. My coolant is at 186deg, trans temp is 156deg and the oil is 190deg. I had a coolant flush in Nov and drove from Cali here to Missouri in Dec and have been here since. I never checked the coolant really until I saw the white smoke and noticed that it was low by about 2 inches so I filled it to just above the top cold fill line yesterday. Today, while the engine is hot, the coolant is about a millimeter below the bottom cold fill line.
Is this normal for the coolant to fluctuate like that? Since I am puffing white smoke, do you think my EGR has ruptured? I thought the H&S turned the EGR valve off? Could my head be warped or did I blow a head gasket? Have I ruptured a turbo seal? Any help or advice would be much appriciated! Thank you.
