:dunno:Just was out for drive, looked in my side mirror when I got on the gas hard, and I saw it shoot a mix of white and black smoke. Usually it gives a little puff of straight black smoke. I seen it do it a couple more times, the smoke eventually was just white. I parked the truck shut the engine down, turned it back on and it wasnt smoking white anymore. It only has 51,000 miles and has a Six Gun, Monster exhaust and some guages. Im hoping its not the egr cooler but I have a feeling it is. Should I be worried???:dunno:

Could be. Any dried coolant around the degas bottle?

And throw away the Six Gun. It's trash.

Take off the EGR valve and look into the intake manifold. If it's wet, then you're EGR cooler is leaking.

Should be completely dry in the intake manifold. :nod:
There might be some oily carbon build up. But if it looks moist, then that's a leaky EGR cooler
