Does this engine have egr?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
it has an egr. It was replaced last month. Also the head was removed and completely rebuilt. Also a set of new injectors were installed. The smoking only happens when I am pulling off. It stops if I let up on the accelerated. After that there is no problem a least that I can see
