Blowing white/lightblue smoke when idleing... what could this mean?
2002 Freightliner Century S/T
NO inframe done yet.
When we idle, truck blows blue smoke, then clears after about 5 mins. Once we get going, it blows blueish white smoke for about 1 min then clears. We do have a an oil leak but not sure if that would be causing this or not. There is NO oil splatter at top of exhaust or on the top corner or trailer.
Open to ideas &/or comments... I'm thinking I may need to "run the rack" aka head adjustment.
ok guys here's what i found so far,checked air firlter clean no oil ,took off airintake hose from air cooler side found sticky oil "caked" on but none running,checked around exhaust maifold ,no oil leaks,check where it connects to turbo no visible oil around it....when i mention idle i mean for like 10 to 15 minutes at the most...last night we idled for 6hrs cause it was cold when we left out we blew smoke and some oil for about 10 miles before it cleared......so know that I have done that what are your ideas and also thank you all so much for your imput
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
