Black and white smoke. Pls help!

I just recently changed out my number 5 injector. Drive good for a few weeks. This past weekend I hooked up to a small cargo trailer and went on a 5 hour drive. About 2 and 1/2 hours in I pulled up to a red light and I had a ton of white smoke like before when my EGR cooler went out. As soon as I hit on the gas it turned black. I pulled over took some codes and had 2,4,5,8 contribution codes and EGR code. My EGR is deleted so I didn't understand that. Well I let it clear up and try to drive a little bit further. Well about 3 miles down the road I lost all throttle response and as I pulled off the road it died and locked up my wheel. After letting it sit for a little bit I tried to crank it but my starter wouldn't in gauge. So I towed it the rest of the way. Started tearing down to see what the #5 looked like. I got it out and the copper o-ring was gone. Wasnt even in the valve. The tip had so much black residue. I assume that's where my white and black smoke came from. Could the starter be a freak accident? All opinions well greatly help

Right before I went on the trip I changed oil to rotella t6 with rev x. Before I just used rotella 15-40. Could that have affected the injectors when I've been running the 15-40 for 2years know.

May be hydrolocked. Pull that glowplug and see what comes out.

Your not looking at the glow-plug, fluid would come out with a slow cranking. However, you already pulled the injector. Use a vacuum extraction tool with a small tip to suck out the cylinder. Clean the injector cup with a tube brush and again suck out any debris. The cooper washer is probably still in the cup, unless it was MIA from the previous install. Make sure you have a clean injector cup with no washer in the bottom! If it was MIA, it lasted a long time before blowing the fuel o-ring. You might want to have the injector checked. If you are really concerned about #5, replace the nozzle, however, a new set of o-rings and a new copper washer for #5 should work in this case.

Your contribution codes were probably due to exhaust gas getting into the fuel rail.
