debiblck is on a distinguished road
Exclamation loss of power when accelerating w/ white smoke

2009 1500 w/ 4.7 engine. I bought this ruck at 63000 miles. I immediately did all the service work from recommendations 0f 60000 to 65000. oil changes, plugs changed, tranny oil and filter changed, all other filters changed, brakes done, etc..

The problem is after I have ran the truck from cold start for about 20 to 35 miles. If I stop at a red light then start from a dead stop; the truck will act like it loses power, hiccups, partially hesitate, white smoke will come out of tail pipe and sometimes back fires. It does this when traffic is clear and i turn off the highway, then accelerate, it will do it. No engine light will come on.

The mechanic can not find anything, It runs great other wise no problem. I am ready to trade it in for a Chevy!

I observe this when under 2000 rpm to 2500 rpms, i quitely give it power and I maybe at 30 mph ( all these conditions at one time).

It DOES NOT do it all the time!

I hope someone can relay to it. I bought used and do not know its background because the other dealers won"t give me background service history,

Have you checked for water in the oil or vice versa? May need to pull the plugs to read them, white smoke out of the exhaust is caused by coolant or tranny fluid getting into one of the cylinder/cylinders
