Angry Cliffords Time of The Month

Well surprise, surprise.... Clifford is acting up once again. He has 2 misfire codes, cylinder 1 and cylinder 8. once again the truck is lazier then a pet coon.... Also it is back to shaking reall bad when I come to a stop and take off from a light. I've also notice a couple more problems.... First its sounds like crap when you start it, most likely casue of the codes... and the second concern is that it smokes white really bad. I drove it last night for about 1/2 and everything was at operating tempature and i noticed when i left a stop light that it smoke white really bad... so when i got to my girlfriends i got out with it running and had her touch the throttle and sure enough it smoked.... i took a couple videos....

Here a run down of the problems:

Misfire Cylinder 1 Code
Misfire Cylinder 8 Code
Starts Funny
Lazy
Shakes Bad on Easy Acceleration
White Smoke Out The Exhaust
Stalled Once

The check engine light came on too last night but I removed the 87 tune and it went out so im gunna drive it until the light coms back on and take it to the dealer...

Starting Weird



White Smoke

Doesn't white smoke mean blown head gasket?

Yes sir! White smoke usually is antifreeze burning. If you smell the smoke it will have a sweet smell to it. The smoke should also disappear fairly quick as well, almost like a cloud. Unlike burning oil which will have a bluish tint to it and will hang in the air forever.

The smoke isnt blue, its definitly white... I was at a traffic light last night and rev'd it up a couple times and it smokes white and travels about 15-20 feet from the truck and slowly goes away....

That first video of the start sounded like it knocked just as it started. Sure got some weird issues going on. I wonder if the tuner is to blame and now other problems have risen from it?

This is an exhaust video of my truck but you can hear how it starts.



I am running the canned 91 Octane tune without issue currently...
