Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
There should be no smoke if the work was done correctly. If you're seeing oil smoke from the tailpipe then there is definitely a ring, cylinder wall, valve seal/guide or turbo issue.
Is it using oil
That's a definite sign of ring or cylinder wall problems then.
That would be internal corporate records from when a vehicle was originally built but it isn't something accessible to the public.
HI I AM TYLER I HAVE OVER 15 YEAR EXPERIENCE AS AN ASE MASTER AND A CURRENT DODGE EXPERT AT A DEALER. SO WHAT IS IT THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO FIND OUT. ABOUT THE BLOCK NUMBER AND WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW WHAT IS EXACTLY WRONG WITH YOUR TRUCK. I WOULD NEED THE VIN OF YOUR TRUCK TO LOOK UP THE BUILD SPECS ALSO I HAVE A FEW TESTS THAT CAN BE DONE TO FIGURE OUT WHERE THE ISSUE LIES. DID IT UES OIL WHEN YOU TOOK IT TO HIM THE VERY FIRST TIME? TAKE THE INTAKE HOSE OFF AND WITHOUT THE ENGINE RUNNING (SO MAKE SURE THE KEY IS OFF) DOES THE IMPELLER AT THE TURBO MOVE IN ANY DIRECTION OTHER THEN SPINNING IF SO THEN YOU MIGHT JUST NEED A TURBO. IF YOU WOULD LIKE A CALL THEN I CAN DO THIS ALSO BUT WOULD LIKE TO SEE IF YOU CAN GET A LITTLE MORE INFO FOR ME SO I CAN BEST HELP YOU QUICKLY. THANKS LET MY KNOW WHAT YOU FIND.
