What would it be if it was burning oil? piston rings? Someone said could be the turbo? Also heard compression issues could cause this...
It was more white smoke than anything and got really bad after sitting at idle for a while. I just don't understand why it still runs fine and clears right up while driving... I had a duramax do exactly what this truck is doing, then one day BAM is blew a cylinder and left the entire city smoked out while driving it to the scrap yard.
