My '05 Ex is puzzling me.
Had some white smoke, did some troubleshooting & thought the turbo seal was coked so had it rebuilt. Smoke went away, drove her for a few days and all was great. (See the thread Turbo seal blow-by?
) An interesting side effect of the "new" turbo was that my deltas went from ~10* to ~8*. Maybe it's related to the cooler weather?? (The EGR is coming - hoping I can put it off until springtime.)
Anyway, with this cold snap today there was a bit o' light white smoke at startup that went away fairly quickly. I let 'er idle for about 5 minutes before heading to work and then it really let loose with the white smoke - almost like with the turbo.
Don't think it's coolant, there is somewhat of a bluish tint, and it does kinda smell like raw diesel. So I'm thinking maybe an injector? Will check tomorrow to see if it's throwing any codes - no CEL light. My DashBOSS says FICM is at 48V when idling and just driving around the 'hood.
Looking for a reference for good wrench along the Ellicott City/Frederick corridor to have a look see, maybe in my driveway or at a shop. I really want to avoid the stealership even for diagnosing.
