Thinking low compression...
Ok, well to make a long story short, I had an accident where the throttle stuck and turned the truck on its side back in december. I have it now all fixed with a new paint job but... It now smokes a low throttle(sw1), and shuts down really smooth. It doesn't shake or shut down as rough as it used to.
I had all the injectors cleaned and have two brand new ones in it. I am thinking the reasons for the way it is acting is because of low compression, for whatever reason. I have not run more than 5psi of boost yet as I want to further go over everything again and check it. The last time I checked i am not making oil, but I will check it again tomorrow(haven't put but 5 or 6 miles on it since I have gotten it back).
Does this sound like a melted piston or low compression issue? Do I need to worry, or completely stop driving the truck?
