IA Newbie

Hi to all, I am new to both this site and to powerstrokes. I need some advice, I recently bought a 2002 F250 CCSB with 218k and it has some issues. First, smokes white when first started, this tapers off to virtually nothing when warm. Second, if I let it shift into overdrive and let engine rpm's drop to 1200-1400 there is a definite miss, however this goes away if I put my foot into it a little bit. I am leaning toward injectors, but don't know where to start. Any ideas or tips about what I need for tools and how to test would be greatly appreciated!!

Run a scan tool on it see what comes back. When my injector went bad it didnt throw a code on my 04. Diesel parts are not cheap if you cant find the problem take it somewhere or google it.

well actually if you can find an edge programmer they can double as a scan tool and power programmer, same one i had before switching to a t/s chip.
