Another new guy.

Hi guys,

Hey, it's always good to have another diesel guy aboard! Don't mind Jake, he just get's lonely out there! But, we'll get him someone to talk to!! Seriously, Jake is a good source for tech info, so if you got question, he's probably got an answer...................or can make one up!!

Thanks for the welcome guys. I grew up in the county south of Fremont and now live in Elkhorn. No offense to any city guys but I miss living in the country and will move back to an acreage as soon as my wife (newly wed) and I save up some money. I am an electrician and my wife is a veterinary technician, both in Omaha. I will work on posting some pics of my truck as soon as I get the front end fixed. I hit a deer by the Platte River near valley. Not exactly the way I wanted to get a deer.

Question for the diesel guys... My 05 6.0L seems to be smoking a lot more than I remember it from last winter on these cold mornings that we have been having. Do your truck shoot out a lot of white smoke until it gets warm or is it just for a few seconds?

Thanks guys!

fordmustangfan67

p.s. I also have a 1959 Ford Galaxie 500 Hardtop Retractable project car as well as the 1967 Ford Mustang Coupe for cars and a 1967 Yamaha YR1 motorcycle and 2005 Yamaha Wolverine 4 wheeler (no I'm not rich, I just like toys and work hard for what I have!).

My 6.0 smokes a little on these cold mornings, so I don't think it's a problem. I'd love to see that Galaxie and your mustang! Did you hit the deer out by Ginger cove? I know there are always a ton of those stupid things out there!

Hey Kenny,

Welcome to the chapter! If you get a chance, you'll have to post some pics in your gallery of your trucks.

I'll damned......That must be Kenny Korth up there (snowman) I just saw this......anyway....for you diesel boys - white smoke is normal on cold starts due to low cylinder temps......at least that's what the book says. Maybe Kenny knows more, he's a second year diesel tech out here at CCC with me......

yes sir mr. jake, it is i...and as far as the white smoke, u r right, the cold will do that, completely normal unless it continues to smoke when the engine is warm, then you're either burning coolant or your timing is too far advanced if my memory serves me correctly
