'07 cummins engines are not to smoke at all. Cold, hot or upside down. If its smokin, its broken is the motto. '07 's are common rail fuel systems. I think you may have the DPF and the DOC exhaust system needs looked at. If no codes, have the dealer double check with ENSITE or comparable programs to check the engines crank and cam possitiion sensors to make sure they have the same rpm. you could have one going out. If just at startup you have smoke, may just be valve seals leaking. Good luck hope this helped.
by the way unburned fuel is black not white, thats oil...

You have a blown turbo.You have to replace the turbo the oil is going into the turbo and being recycled into the engine and being put into the cylinders if you keep driving it the way it is you will eventually blow the engine. It will high RPM and be running on oil it is called a runaway turbo. It will burn every ounce of oil in your engine in a matter of min utes and your engine will seize up before you know it.It is an exspensive part to replace but it is a very easy thing to change even for the most un mechanical person.Make sure you change your oil & filter at the same time because you will probably have diesel fuel in your oil as well.The bearing does not have to be bad in order for the turbo to be bad.
