Head Gasket?

Was driving to work this morning and the truck started shaking and ticking, when I came to a stop light it was idling rough and when I hit the go pedal it blew a bunch of white smoke. Back at home now, waiting for the Ford dealer to open so I can try to have them fix it. I just bought this truck on Monday night with 82,000 miles on it, all stock. They had better fix this dam thing, I am just learning about these engines and don't want to dive into head gaskets without researching it. I havent had my emissions test done yet, can I bypass the egr? If I have to do this work myself I would appreciate anyones help with part numbers and tips. Thanks, Dale- Proud Ford owner!

Not sure about a diagnosis for your issue. However I will say, IF it is the headgaskets, you may want to think about studs.

No external leaks, oil inside compressor outlet pipe going to intercooler, coolant overflow bottle seems to be ok and not being pressurized, whats going on here?

So I checked all the intake pipes- oil, gotta be the turbo. Took the truck for a drive, blowing out white smoke, got pissed and floored it absolutley no response till I got to about 40 then a big puff of black smoke poured out then I heard the turbo kick in and back to normal. I think it has some valve on the turbo that could have been stuck? I think it's time to pull the turbo off and clean it. Any ideas?

pull your EGR valve and see if it is wet, It should be dry. If it is wet, chances are your cooler is shot.

A certain amount of oil in the CAC pipes is normal due to the crank case vent system which vents this pressure into the air intake, these vapors contain oil which collects there.

hard to diagnose problems with actual testing, but looks like you have it handled anyway.

If you just bought it Monday night I'd definitely take it back to the dealer for repair... Just my $02.

Just got back from the dealer and 97 stroke is the winner, #5 injector or so they say, doesn't make sense to me. I don't like to see oil in the intake like that but whatever. They treated me well and said they would replace it for free. Hopefully I get it back tonight. Now do I have to worry about other injectors failing? I got the Oasis Report and there is no warranty claims on this truck, I cant believe two days after I buy it sh*t starts failing.

With only 82000 on the clock you should still have another 18000 engine warranty.
