Maybe just that the motor is cold or there is moisture in the carbie
Diesles usually smoke when you first turn them on and let them idle

I have a diesel engine that expells white smoke for 5 to 10 miniuts after start up? The exhaust also smells rich with fuel? I bought the truck used and am trying to fix the problems! Please help.


When an engine expels black smoke it means that the piston rings are going and is consuming oil. And when the color of smoke is white the engine is consuming more fuel. Both are harmful. Black to the engine and pocket while white to the pocket. It seems that the injector need careful attention.
Cold engine does expel white smoke initially. When the temperature rises to normal working temperature the smoke stops. This is normal in your case. 5 to 10 minutes to warm up is normal for any diesel engine. But any thing more than that needs attention.

2004 Excursion 6.0 diesel blows intermitent white smoke


I don't drive a Ford but I drive an International and white smoke on start up means the engine is too cold to properly burn the fuel. Your black oil or soot is unburnt fuel. You should look at your engine's preheat system for a malfunction.

I put another engine in my 1988 ford 250 deisel and smokes a lot, I've changed The injection pump and reset the timing, Plenty of fuel and runs great but smokes unbelievably, What could I do to get it to...


Before you do the next oil change,get a can of motor flush.
This is the inexpensive method the free up the rings and restore some of the compression.
Use Shell 15W40 oil ==
Do you know the history of your replacement engine?
When was the last timing belt change?
A loose timing chain and guide can cause injector timing problem.
==== Start monitoring the coolant level for protential head gasket leak. ====
To save time,I would do a high rpm (below REDLINE) highway ran to blow off all remaining diesel SOOT.
Let the shop to do a compression test. DO NOT DO THIS YOURSELF.
The max psi is 1850 PSI
=== Stay away from biodiesel blend fuel until you figure out what's the cause of the problem.
Use Diesel Cleen silver bottle and see is there any improvement. ===
Add the recommend dose of SEAFOAM into the crankcase to soften the valve stem seal.
Leaky valve stem seal can introduce oil drop into the cyclinders over-night. =====
Mointor any oil lose from valve cover.

Is the smoke only from tail pipe?


Please post answers and I will follow up on it.
