White smoke when cold, Black under Acceleration
I'm back. Throwing a glow plug code and when I start the truck up, it starts harder than normal, but starts and runs smooth. It's about 27 degrees outside and when idling it has a white smoke but it dissipates in the air quick. When I put under a little acceleration, it turns coal black and thick. Is this just the cold motor because of the glow plug code. Taking it the shop soon to check the module. Please tell me this is a cold motor issue and not injectors. I just did them like 10k ago. No power issues and runs like a champ. Can the white smoke come from unburnt fuel then turn black as I add more. This would indicate either a cold engine or a boost leak. Turbo is still a little laggyl
