Question about Cars & Trucks
Don't know exactly what's wrong. My check engine light came on and my code reader read PO147 which was a fuel delivery error. I changed my fuel filter right away and it seemed to run a little better right away. The truck still however smokes blue and shakes when started. I took it to a shop for a quick look and they figured I may have a hole in a piston cause of the blow by. Couldn't get the cap off when I picked the truck up, probably shouldn't of picked the truck up because of that. Could this be an injector? Truck seems to run fine once it's warmed up. Is there anything I could use to clean my injectors myself? I've tried running fuel conditioner (sea breeze), maybe it wasn't as great of quality I heard it was? Do you have to pull the injectors to test them? Thanks, Kelly.
Code p 0147 refers to heated oxygen sensor(HO2S) 3 bank 11 heater control---circuit malfunction====causes wiring--HO2S--- ECM
forget the hole in the piston statement as you say that it runs fine when warmed up
if there was a hole it would have a big miss at all times
shaking when starting indicates a misfire problem and running well indicates that the misfire is a problem injector
pull the injectors and have them professionally cleaned and adjusted
the smoke is from oil getting into the combustion chambers and it indicates failed valve stem seals allowing the oil around the valves to leak past the stems into the chambers on shut down
you should have a compression test done to determine ring condition and wear of the engine
Don't take it back to that shop as the hole theory indicates that they are not listening to you and have little idea of what they are doing
take it to an accredited professional service center that has experience on your make of vehicle

Blue smoke on starting is a sign of oil in the engine cylinders. .
Excessive fuel would be black smoke on starting. I am concerned that it happens when starting. This is an indication of a valve issue. Bent, broken, bad spring, wallowed guides. This repair is not going to be cheap. Only way to know for sure is either a compression test or leak down test.

1- check there is spark come from spark wires
2- check the fire timing by looking for every wire in the right place
3- check there is injector signl
4- check for any vacuom leak
5- try to clean the MAF by brake and parts cleaner
6- try to reset all the code and see what will come after that

IF YOU GOT CYLINDER MISFIRE.OR OPEN FUEL INJECTOR.THAT WILL CAUSE THE PCM TO ENRICHEN FUEL MIXTURE.TO ADJUST TO DEAD CYLINDER.WHICH ACT AS A LARGE VACUUM LEAK.THATS WHY YOUR EXHAUST TAIL PIPES HAS A RAW FUEL SMELL AND WHITE SMOKES.

Good Evening, you might want to check those injectors, I can not remember for certain but that setup was sequential and when one or two have a problem it would take out the rest. Ohm out the injectors and see what you have there.

The igniter interprets signals of time and position from the distributor, fits the efi ecu with information and then the ecu gets back to igniter to tell it when to fire specific cylinder, we used to have problems with the distributors and also igniters.
