I have a 96 2wd F-250 (212k miles) with an inline 6 cyl and at idle there is a substantial amount of smoke coming from the oil dipstick tube and the oil fill hole on the valve cover. I need to find out what is causing this and how to fix it. I don't understand why it would be coming from both when they are on opposite ends of the engine.
This truck is also running very rich you can smell it in the exhaust and it is lacking power. I did notice that a sensor on the intake manifold behind the alternator is broken. Does anyone know the name of this sensor or what it does so I can replace it? I am hoping that it might solve my air/fuel mixture problem.
I just recently bought this truck but have had ford trucks my whole driving career but these are new problems for me. Thanks in advance for any help.
have the same problem?
