Truck cold start smoke
Added redline full fuel treatment to my truck a couple of tanks ago and still getting the smoke on cold start any ideas how long this will last or should I start to worry
The fourth-generation Ram pickup truck (called Dodge Ram until 2010) was introduced in 2008 for the 2009 model year and sold as the Dodge Ram 1500. The 2500, 3500, 4500, and 5500 models were later added to the lineup.
What colour smoke, white, grey, blue or thick black?
white is water vapour (nothing to worry about), blue means there is oil getting into the system somewhere, grey could be oil too, faulty PCV if it has one or transmission fluid getting into the engine from a leak (bit less common) or turbo issues, black usually means too much fuel, in a diesel a clogged DPF if it has one, each colour smoke could indicate many things.
Depends on what engine is in it diesel or petrol, I would usually check air filters, injectors if you can and any visual issues like leaks you can see in the engine bay, if its a diesel especially give it a blast down the road when its up to temp and get the revs up and check in the mirror for any smoke coming out when your foot is down.
depending on the mileage on the car and how its been driven and maintained could also indicate why its there.
