PLEASE HELP !!! Fuel leaking out of exhaust manifold

I have an 03 6.0 today I started it up and went back in the house. When i came back out 10 minutes later it was chugging and running rough. I ran it down the road. I opened it up and it was sluggish at first but once it built up some boost pressure it took right off. I turned around about a mile down the road and held it full throttle again. this time when I let off I could hear a tapping sound and it was throwing a ton of white smoke out of the exhaust. It is acting like an injector. I let it sit for a while and when i went to start it a few hours later, it turned over for a split second then sounded like the motor wanted to lock up. I went to crawl under it to check out the started but I noticed something dripping. I looked into it a little closer and found fuel coming out of the front of the passenger side exhaust manifold. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know or if anyone has heard of these symptoms also let me know. I dont check here very often so please email me at w900king@gmail.com THANKS, Jerry

Sounds like a wide open injector to me. Gonna need to find out what cylinder...sometimes just looking at the exhaust manifold will help to locate the bad injector. Be careful though, you dont want to hydro lock the engine trying top start it. Id suggest if capable to pull all the glow plugs on the suspect bank. Have a friend crank engine and watch for the fuel squirting out of glow plug hole. replace that injector

I can understand not being on here much.
Sounds like a stuck injector like apple said. I wouldn't drive it anymore unless you want an ornament.
