1998.5 24v 4x4

Just bought me a weathered cummins. lol Its got alot of issues but hopefully still got alot of lifw left. The radiator popped on the drive home decause I thought it'd be cool to do a burn out. Haha there is a leak on the driver side might be fuel pump but not sure. There is also a line that is disconnected that is close to the power steering that creates suction when the engine is on but I cant see where it connects to. Niw for thw bad new . . . White smoke like snoop dogg. Im praying its nothing major but I paid 2k for the truck so my money is on something expensive. Not gona get to wild for now just a daily That can get a lil crazy now and again. Help/advice would be awesome

Sounds like you bought troubles. White smoke, that is bad.. it could be a head gasket.

The radiator may be stopped up and just need cleaning, over heating the engine could crack the head.

The vacuum leak could be a broken hose on the vacuum pump.

Check your fuel pressure to the VP44 you need no less than 5 psi at WOT and not more than 15 psi.
Good luck, you are going to need it.

The hose with vacuum looks like its by the base of the powersteering box and I cant see where the other end connects to

How do I check the fuel pressure?

Thanks for the info

Check and make sure the hose is attached to the vacuum pump. There is a hose for draining the water from the filter / water separator, that should be there.

Got the fuel problem fixed but it still blows white smoke and if I rev it up I hear a lil pop from the exhaust. I talked to a friend that had stuff put in his tank. He said I should try to clean the tank out. Wanting some other advice or ideas. The water is fine and not leaking into block because the water level is the same in the radiator. Also I fixed the fuel problem by adding an airdog system and I have a question, can the stock fuel canister and stock fuel lines be removed? Im asking cause the fuel canister has that red wire coming from it is the wire necessary or is there somewag to remove all the extra thats not being used

White smoke, sounds like a head gasket. But I did say that months ago.
