wrong oil... try some kendal nitro 60 weight or valvoline 50 weight plus one bottle of LUCAS stabilizer in place of one quart of oil and call me in the morning... also, change your fuel filters regularly... and everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and a professional shop manual should be available at the library in the reference section for FREE...make copies of the right pages and fix your vehicle like a PRO! :) good luck Dave :) white smoke usally means water in the cylinders it could be a blowen head gasket Rooterman2 . agreed. white smoke is generally water, blue smoke is normally oil, and that black smoke usually means you have to much fuel entering the combustion chamber.

Black smoke, from any diesel, is the result of partially burned fuel. Overfueling will cause black smoke.

a dirty air filter or a dirty fuel filter will cause a diesel to smoke

No, it would not be good for the engine at all. It will smoke and foul all of the spark plugs as well as cause excessive wear on the engine.
