99, 7.3, Heavy white smoke
My neighbor has a 99 7.3 that he recently bought, He says its always been lacking power. Two days ago is started blowing heavy white smoke at all times, mostly at idle after being warmed up, found out today from a diesel mechanic he doesnt know that he had a hose clamp on the inlet turbo lines loose. They have told him his turbo is most likely smoked, does this sound right? We are going to look at it more tomorrow but would this cause white smoke? also he was told that the turbo on his 99 is smaller then later years. Please help with any input, I am going to look into his MAT sensor tomorrow to see if its bad.
