Diesel’s Blowing White, Blue or Black Smoke

Does your Ford Powerstroke, GM Duramax, Dodge Cummins blowing White, Blue or Black smoke from the exhaust?

Orange County Diesel is your experienced and reliable diesel aftermarket and repair shop located in Huntington Beach, CA. If your diesel is blowing smoke, we suggest bringing it in to have it diagnosed by one of our experience and highly qualified diesel technicians.

White Smoke

White smoke usually occurs when raw diesel fuel comes through the exhaust unburned and intact. The reason for this could be any of the following:

  • Faulty or damaged injectors
  • Low cylinder compression
  • Worn timing gear or damaged crankshaft cause incorrect injection timing
  • Water entering combustion spaces due to bad head gasket or broker cylinder heads or blocks

Black Smoke

Black smoke is the most common and can indicate incomplete combustion of your diesel fuel due to any of the following reasons:

  • Worn or dirty injectors
  • Over fueling
  • Low Cylinder compression
  • Bad fuel
  • Low or cool operating temperatures
  • Carbon build up in combustion and exhaust areas
  • Incorrect air-fuel ration
  • Bad or faulty turbocharger
  • Incorrect timing
  • Restricted inductions system
  • Or other engine tune factors

The sooner your replace worn or damaged parts or components the less damage will be done on your engine. It is important to keep on top of your diesels maintenance including tunes, valve adjustments and servicing on your air, fuel and oil filters.

Blue Smoke

Blue smoke is usually an indicator of your oil being burnt from the combustion chamber, which can happen from several different ways including:

  • Piston ring sticking
  • Cylinder glaze
  • Worn valve seals or guides
  • Wrong grade of oil
  • Or other reasons

Blue smoke is often evident at cold starts.

Quadzilla Boost Fooler for Dodge Cummins 5.9L and 6.7L Trucks

boost_fooler_ad If you are towing heavy loads, using a downloader/programmer or if you are just running modified injectors on your 1998.5-2009 5.9L or 6.7L Dodge Cummins, then the Quadzilla Boost Fooler is a MUST HAVE PRODUCT! On the 6.7L this product is a MUSY HAVE to go with ANY electronic performance device including the plug in devices!

While programmers can definitely improve performance, there are still things that they cannot do to allow you to gain optimal power and efficiency out of your engine. The Boost Fooler will allow you to increase turbo boost to compensate for the added fueling modifications you have made. Enabling your turbo to produce more boost will increase overall horsepower and torque and you will lower your exhaust temperatures.

The Boost Fooler is even a great enhancement for a stock truck that hauls heavy loads and needs exhaust temperature reduction. Even on a stock truck you can easily gain 5-8psi of boost pressure to help cool your EGTs. You will also see a slight improvement in peak horsepower.

The Quadzilla Boost Fooler uses a specialized high impedance circuit to allow you to make more turbo boost without setting any ECU error codes. The Boost Fooler is 100% weatherproof and designed for simple under-the-hood installation.

So what can you expect?

On any year model Dodge, you will be able to make as much turbo boost as possible with your fueling modifications. It is important to notice that the stock turbos do have some limitations.

If you desire extreme levels of turbo boost, you may need a larger, aftermarket turbocharger. Horsepower gains will vary from 10hp on a stock truck up to 50hp on heavily modified trucks. EGT reductions will vary from 75°F on a stock truck and up to 300°F on heavily modified trucks.

1998.5-2004 5.9L Cummins

On 1998.5-2004 5.9L Cummins you will need to physically modify your wastegate to gain more turbo boost. Doing this without the Boost Fooler will result in check engine lights and codes set into the computer. Stock 98-04 trucks should generate 18-23psi of boost pressure stock (depending on year model). With the Boost Fooler you will be able to run 35+ psi of boost depending on your fueling enhancements.

2004.5-2007 5.9L Cummins “600” and “610” Series Engines

The 2004.5-2007 5.9L Cummins uses an electronic wastegate which is operated off of the MAP sensor. In this instance no modifications to your turbo will be necessary. Stock 04.5-07 trucks typically spike up to 32psi of boost pressure. With the Boost Fooler you will see up to 40psi of boost on a stock truck and up to 48psi of boost on heavily fueled trucks.

2007.5-2009 6.7L Cummins

For the new 6.7L we have yet another new turbo design. This turbo uses electronically controlled vanes inside the turbo to adjust boost levels and allow for quicker spool up and ability to precisely control EGT’s. With the Boost Fooler installed you will see drops of 125 degrees on a stock truck (considerably more on modified trucks), up to 10psi peak boost gain and 6-8 psi sustained boost gain. This is the ONLY product on the market that is plug-and-play. There is no cutting, no splicing and no guessing. Simply plug this device in enjoy it!

All of these products can help increase the life of your engine by lowering peak exhaust temperatures while also giving you a small boost in power to go with it!
