So I bout a truck from a friend 1999 6 spd..fuel system has been replaced from tank to go pump and larger return lines..I’ve owned a lot of diesels and this is the first Cummins. I’ve noticed a little bit of a haze at idle..this goes on for awhile but eventually goes away..we’ve only driven this truck 5 miles in two years. But it’s about to be on the road..is this something a Cummins might just do for a little while? It’s a bit of a nasty smell compared to a 7.3 or MB diesels.. hopefully it’d nothing serious. The vp44 has been changed once already before we got it. Mileage 219k

My guess is original injectors (worn some) coupled with sitting

Does it go away when warm?

Run a couple tanks through it. Get it warm, use an additive to help the VP44.

My ‘01 (380k) (sold) and my ‘02 (218k) will both do it after sitting for a month.
