engine clicking / White Smoke!
driving home when I heard a noise and it felt like the truck lost a little bit of power. Immediately afterward, smoke began pouring out of the exhaust pipe and a clicking sound started from the engine on passenger side. I cut the engine and coasted to the side. restarted the engine and it ran but smoke and clicking continued so I cut it again. I turned it over again this afternoon, it started without the clicking but with less power and white smoke continues to poor out.
I just bought this truck last September and it was in good shape with a clean record. 125,000 miles. 2500, 01, 24 valve. Automatic, Fuel injector pumps and fuel pump replaced 5 months ago (OUCH $$$$$$), oil change 4 days ago and oil still ok. I installed a fuel pressure gauge and it was at about 10 psi before and after the problem occurred (ie. No change in fuel pressure).
any ideas? I'm a bit disappointed in the fact that my first Dodge has broken down twice in 6 months of ownership with relatively low miles. Any help is greatly appreciated .
