Rough idle and blue smoke (injectors) please help

HI;
I have a 06 6.0 stock power stroke with 109,000 miles.The truck has been running great, 19 to 20 on the hwy 15 to 16 intown. The other day i took it
to the service center to have it serviced and coolant flushed.Please note
there was nothing wrong with the truck, no cold start problems no rough idle
running perfect.Went to pick the truck up and the service manager stated
that i needed injectors. He cranked the truck and i got sick to stomach.Now how can this happen from running perfact to rough idle and smoke out the exaust for at least 3 minutes. Please help me answer this.Thanks

something probably happened at the dealer. maybe got ran with no oil? to me that makes more sense than this just being a coincidence

the richest ones are not those who have the most, but those who need the least
