Hello all, I just joined this forum and like what I read. I recently purchased a 2008 6.4 crewcab. I really like the truck. However, I dont know if its because of reading all these post, I find myself looking under the truck, hood and listening for anything out of the norm. Oh, this is also my first diesel. I have a couple of questions about a few things.
First, should I be seeing any smoke in the morning out of the exhuast? Its not really heavy and goes away after ive been driving a few minutes. It looks like vapor to me.
The other thing i noticed today, when im driving and accel a little to speed up I hear a short whistle. is that normal?
And the last thing, Since I heard the whistle, when I got home and put it in park and rev'ed it up. I could not hear the whistle. However, I did notice a small amount of black smoke out of the exhaust when I would rev it.
Anyway, any feedback on these issue would be helpful. I just dont want to find myself paying high fees later for something I dont address quickly.
Seeing as I only got a 12 month warranty. YIKES!
Bought it used with 57,800 miles on it.
