Ideling Issues

Hello eveyone and thanks in advance for any help that you give. I have a "06" F350CC 4x4 with the 6.0 adn 129000 miles and have had issues with losing coolant, rough idle even after warm up and sluggish power and it has died a few times while driving. The times that it died the truck was pretty cold and I just assumed it was because it was just cold as it started back up and worked fine. On the advice of a friend I put on an EGR delet kit which has seemed to help somewhat, has not died but still having the rough idle. Also, i noticed when I pulled the turbo to install the EGR delete there was quite alot of oil outside the turbo on the air intake side. My questions are can I do anything with the turbo such as a reseal kit or is this a waste of time and is the idle problem the injectors themselves or in the control module. This is all the data I have at this point. I am trying to find my next step in troubleshooting. I am new to diesels so please dumb down your responses as I am not familiar with any of the acronyms or terminology. Thanks again

Well took the truck in to my local shop and found that I have 4 injectors going bad and they told me that i have compression loss between 5-8% on 3 cylinders. Question #1 could the injector issues be causing a loss of compression due to the fact that not enough fuel is being combusted in the cylinder? If not is 5-8% loss a terrible amount of compression loss? I was trying to decide if replacing the injectors is worth the cash or should I look at getting rid of this truck? Thanks all.
