Question about 1997 Ford F350 Crew Cab

1 Answer

I have a f-350 ford truck with the 6.0 diesel. It has begun to put out light blue smoke when I first start it. It quits after a few minutes. I am also having some fluid leakage out of the muffler when I turn the engine off. I resembles oil, but is very thin like water. Truck is running fine.

It could be a possible head stud problem because ford has had lots of problems with the head studs stretching under boost and ARP makes a head stud kit for it that fixs that except you will have to do the head gaskets along with the studs, "my best guess hope its helpful"

I have 06 ford 350 6 liter diesel has do not run for 4 days batteries are low and blowing white smoke


White smoke is a sign of water which may be a sign of a blown head gasket..... havve a reputable shop do a compression test on this vehicle.
If the car runs a few minutes does it overheat??? If so turn it off and dont drive it until it gets fixed if not white could be condensation and low batteries could be just in need of replacement and or a good charge.

Why want 6.0 blow black smoke with banks 6 gun iq


Black smoke from a diesel is caused by overfueling, even with a banks the engine obviously is burning the fuel efficiently. Black smoke will not make your truck produce more power, i am not sure why you would want this to happen anyway.

2005 Ford F350 SuperDuty 6.0 litre Diesel. Truck was very sluggish to accelerate and little or no boost showing on turbo pressure gauge. Next morning, it started fine, but when put in gear would quit and...


well the question is where did the coolant go. if it didnt leak out it must have went out the pipe. As you stated, white smoke, white smoke is coolant. You definately need to get this to the shop. You cannot drive it this way or further damage will occur.

1989 Ford F250 7.3L Diesel. Bat light came on then smoked the VR


Thats a guessing game, but first, if the battery light was on, that means no alternator output. So recharge the batteries and be sure they are good, Then replace the alternator. If the batteries and the alt are good, and the battery light is off, then all should be OK.

99 F-350 smoke from electrical connector in back of fuel filter


If you Cleaned up all of the Diesel There is still a Small amount of Oil from the Diesel on Anything that it Touched. Use some Spray DeGreaser on a Shop Wrag and let it dry Before you restart. Should be OK.
