2003 lb7 rough idle and smoking like a big dog?
Just this morning it started idling pretty rough and is smoking when its idling and when you take off it seems to clear up after going for a little while. Im pretty sure it's an injector problem but not positive, going to check it out tomorrow night on the pluse width. Is there any other thing that might be causing this and also is it going to hurt to drive it more? I've checked to see if it's making oil and don't think it is, also I've checked the air filter and put some fuel additive in it too but still on a smoking......any ideas please hit me hit me up!!! Thank you

Sounds like injectors to me. Check your balance rates and that will help you out alot!! If your not getting diesel in your oil then you are okay to drive it for awhile before you hurt anything.

I also have an 03 LB7 and after reading all the fuel additive stuff and injector problems I added some stuff to mine......almost immediately I noticed some white smoke which seemed to load up worst while extended idling.....I thought they may have been pooched.......just finished up returning on a trip from WA state and after running 3 tanks of fuel through the exhaust is clear again and I got just shy of 25 mpg on the return trip home.......heres hoping your in luck........
