Hello

 

This is another expert.

 

You said: "i have white smoke coming out of tailpipe after oil change."

 

Please confirm that THE ONLY THING THAT WAS DONE WAS AN OIL CHANGE and nothing was added to the crankcase other than engine oil. Also please confirm that NO OTHER PARTS WERE CHANGED at that time.

 

How many kilometers on your truck ?

 

What grade of oil was installed at the last oil change? What brand and grade of oil was installed today? Lastly, how many kilometers has it been since the last oil change?

 

Has your cooling system required any "topping up"?

 

Thank you. Your replies will allow me to more accurately identify the most likely cause of your concern.

 

Thanks for using Just Answer.
