New 08 F250 owner
Although I'm new to diesels, I'm a long time gas engine performance tinkerer and builder. In May I bought a used 08 F250 Lariat. This is my second Ford diesel (previously an 05 F250-6.0L owner). I'm obviously a diesel novice but learning quickly and in a couple instances, the hard way. My latest issue seems to have to do with the DPF. At about 150-160 miles it appears to regen causing whitish-blue smoke and heavy fumes. From what I've read in the forums, this seems to be a regen issue although there is plenty of info that says it could be something else. I would like any comments or questions to help pin this down. I'm thinking I need a DPF delete but want to be sure before I go down that path. I'm running stock and have no performance tunes so any recommendations in that area would be greatly appreciated. By the way, I drive mostly in town but I often pull a 26' travel trailer.
