Need Help, Dead pedal w/blue smoke
OK so I have a problem on start up, I have a 98.5 CTD, w/ a 5 speed. I just bought it a few weeks back. When it firsts starts after sitting for a while (couple of hours)there is a lot of blue smoke, the truck misses, and it has a big flat spot (dead pedal). This happens for a good 5 minutes before whatever it is blows itself out. Once it is warmed up, you never see anything but maybe a little black smoke and the truck runs great, i haven't run a scanner on it yet, but i can tell you the blue smoke coming out is not burnt oil, well atleast it doesn'y smell like it. There doesn't seem to be any blow by in the motor when i pop the oil filler cap off. I have heard of a possible leaky injector, what do you guys think? Anything i can do to Diagnoss this?
Thanks in advance
