Engine Mechanical problem
1987 Ford F250 V8 Four Wheel Drive Manual 000000 miles
The truck fires up very easily and quickly and runs very very strong. When I start it I get a big puff of oil smoke then it runs somewhat clean. If I really get on the gas sometimes I just get black diesel smoke, sometimes I get a huge white cloud. The engine doesnt surge or hesitate or do anything out of the ordinary except burn large quantities of oil.
Also today I was putting some of that extremely thick oil that supposedly helps with the oil burning problem and I noticed that lots of air and smoke is being blown out of the crankcase where I would normally put the oil in.
I thought it might be a head gasket but im really not sure anymore. Any thoughts?
