Hate to say it but the truck is puking again. I got my studs down within the last month, ARP put in, new HPOP, new EGR cooler, new EGR valve, new gaskets, new VGT solenoid, new i/c boots, new thermostat.

I picked the truck up after having all this done, truck ran STRONG, went on vacation for about 2 weeks and got home last night, I wanted to take it for a ride so I went to start it. It just cranked for a while and I thought it was the batteries? Finally it like kicked over sorta but didnt fully start, BIG cloud of smoke. White/gray. Then I got it to run. Ran ok but smoked a little and it was dark out so I couldnt really see. Today got home from work around 4. I was actually talking to Nate on the phone when this was happening, the truck would just crank. took it about 2-3 mins to turn over. When it finally did WOW the cloud was huge, pure white. Hazed white for the time it was running. Took it for a ride, rough idle, smokey as hell, still had power though. I am thinking maybe the heads are bad? IDK anymore, I just had this stuff done last month, I probably put 200 miles on the truck since I got it back. Anybody have any idea whats going on.

Im dropping it off to the dealer again in the morning and let them look at it. So either way I let you guys know the outcome and see what happens tomorrow.

they did replace the cooler with a brand new one, Im wondering if that is the problem, if it is then Im going to get the egr delete kit from elite and be done with that, the sct turns it off I believe but doesnt stop gasses from going in there?!. this damn EGR cooler! :hehe:

I've heard of cases were it took 3 EGR coolers to fix the problem. I think Evel Eye went through 3 before he blocked his off.

thanks alot guys, just got back from the dealer today..really weird, took the sct off, drove it to the dealer, we did a bunch of tests, everything passed, then we loaded the sct back up, PERFECT!. I drove home blowing black the whole time. I dont know what happened, maybe because it sat for a little while??? Either way, Elite is getting a call from me today! :hehe:

thank you to everyone for the help, Ill see what happens with the truck today.
