Re: Important

Another person came to look at my '02 F250.
They left because they said is smoked too much. Cold 7.3s don't smoke a little until they are warmed up?
He was pissed because he dove an hour and a half.

Mine lets out a puff on startup, but is otherwise clear. Guess he shouldn't have expected typical used car issues on a 12 year old truck.

Smoking on startup is a precursor to a lot of other diesel problems. He probably knows his stuff and chose to walk away so he didn't have to deal with it.

Re: Important

Most of the reason is it had a half a tank of waste motor oil in it and I topped it off with regular diesel.
I think tomorrow I am going to pump the 40 gallons into the Cat, change the fuel filter and put fresh D2 in it.
That will clear up the smoking.

Re: Important

I did top it off with fresh D2 thinking that would help.
He had his mind made up before he started it. He looked at the worn seat and the rusted cab corner.
I don't care, come fall anything 4x4 sells.
I may raise the price in Sept.

Not in summer. Unless they've been abused or have problems.

Our 96 w200k lets out a little puff of fuel smoke (white) at startup.
97 w300k doesn't usually.
That's with sitting at least a week between startups most of the time, usually closer to a month.
In winter they both have the typical fuel smoke till warmed up.
Only time I've ever seen them smoke black was in Colorado with trailer.

My 30 year old 6.9 doesn't even smoke when first started on a summer day.

I'm assuming it was blue smoke from wmo? I'd be mad too if I drove that far and it looked like it was about to die.

Re: Important

My 7.3 gives one puff on start-up but at 300k with original injectors in it, I'm blaming failing o-rings...
