My buddy was behind me the other day and said he noticed my truck would put out a mix of black and blueish smoke whenever i left a light. i know it could be a number of things but the truck runs perfectly fine from what i can hear and see my service engine light is on but its been on since i installed and later removed a 10k resistor in my ICP sensor. im gonna have the truck scanned for codes soon but was wondering if anyone could help me out on this before hand. thanks in advance!!

Ever since i got my tunes, if i lug the motor for a while just cruising around it smokes blue and black for a bit. i think it is just that the motor gets loaded up with all the extra fuel. once i clean it out it goes away...

It's nothing to do with the glow plugs if the trucks warmed up. When exactly do you get a blue haze and how much of a blue haze?

Nope not glow plugs or anything to do with them if its happening when the truck is up to temp. The only thing they have to do with is cold starting.

How many miles are on your truck?

its probably a long shot but i took my ccv off and found that it was leaking from the gaskets(that are supposed to seal it to the valve cover) were pinched and torn real bad and was leaking decently, could this possibly be causing my truck to smoke???? again i know its prolly a long shot but im tryin to figure this out.
