Blue smoke is oil, probably a sign of worn rings, has it done quite high mileage?

If it is just occasionally it is prob the dpf regeneration. When this happens it will feel like the truck is losing power. It will last about 10 minutes then should stop. Truck will do this every about every 300 miles to burn off particulate in exhaust system

SOURCE: NO GAUGES & WON'T SHIFT TRANSMISSION

I would have the high and low shift sensors replaced first. If it continues to not shift it is staying in limp mode and you need to take it to trans shop to have diagnostic

It is running ruff


did you disconnect the battery when you changed the starter? are there any codes stored? like james stated if it was starter related it would have happened right after but I also can't think of a starter causing any problems beyond not starting. if no codes I would check plugs, could be bad gas, and make sure all connectors are plugged in from when the car was worked on , something might have came loose or possibly broke.

My truck is blowing white smoke out the tail pipe and I have no power wont go but I can idle around its a 2055 f250 turbo diesel, 300000 kms...litterally just started doing this a couple days ago..now ...


White smoke for a diesel means air in the fuel system. You will have to start at the engine, I start at the line going to the fuel pump. Get some fuel in a can, remove the line to the supply side of the pump and put another line from the can to the pump. If it starts and doesn't smoke , then you have to work your way back to the tank and find the spot that is sucking air. If it doesn't start the I would replace the filter first, check again. There is a possibility that the injector pump is bad, but these don't usually throw white smoke. They just make the engine have very little power or no start.

97 f250 5.8L starts to run rough and puffs out thick black smoke. It comes and goes. Any ideas?


Exhaust problems. Black smoke=exhaust, blue smoke=oil, white smoke=water.

Car running ruff after tran put in.


black smoke is an indicator of too much fuel not burning in the combustion chamber, or too much carbon build up in the exhaust. you might have an injector problem, i.e. 2 much gas overloading somewhere.
