Angry Smoking-- am I going BROKING

I have an 05 350 dually with all original engine and 78,000 on it. Drove about 150 miles this weekend and now it starts with a cloud of blue smoke that changes to white when it finally gets warmed up. Chugs and chugs it way along til it comes up to temp. Still smokes at stop lights. I have no signs of leakage,, de gas bottle still has liquid in it. Is this a simple fix or an ordeal?? No check engine lights or anything. What can I expext the tech guy to tell me???. PLEASE GIVE ME THE STRAIGHT ANSWER. Thanks, POOP

What sort of dollars are we talking about from a dealer doing the repair?? I have looked at e-bay and found a turbo seal kit for under 200.00, Are these any good??? Thanks POOP

Pull the exhaust pipe(down pipe) off the turbo and feel inside it. If it feels sticky and/or you see oil, your oil seal is blown. I have read limited success with rebuild kits. Some people have posted that after a couple thousand miles, they are right back to smoking again. Mine has a blown seal, I have a new turbo on the way though.

As far as the ficm, does the truck start the same as it always does, or does it feel fairly rough starting up. And then it runs like crap until it warms up? If that's the case, the ficm could be shot as well.

This truck hasn't been fueled up with GASOLINE by any chance has it? This would be very quick and simple to verify. Simply drain a fuel sample into a cup, and pour it on the ground in a safe location. Attempt to ignite it with a lighter. Does it smell like gasoline? Does it ignite? Check the basics, check the basics, check the basics!!!
