Just shut down?

Well I'm heartbroken. My rig just started blowing white smoke for about 30 seconds and then shut down. Now I have what looks to be oil? running out of my exhaust. Truck wont start, had to have it towed to the house. Any help I always appreciated. Thanks guys.

Your engine cylinder is full of fuel. Maybe a bad o-ring or injector. Pull codes and see what cylinder is affected. Will the engine turn over?

No it wont turn over. It will try to crank but that is it. I planned on taking it to my mechanic on Monday. Will a regular OBDII work at reading the codes?

No you need one specifically for diesels. You can try the ob2 scanner but I don't think it will tell you anything. If you want to you can pull your glow plugs and see which cylinder has fuel in it. Good luck.

Ok thanks. I guess I will be waiting till Monday to get the codes off of it. As far as the glow plugs, your talking to a hardcore rookie here sir. I know what they are and what they do, as far as getting to them...that's a different story. Are they pretty easy to get to and remove? If so I could start tackling them right away.

Also, does anyone have any suggestions on a good quality oil cooler, turbo, etc. to go with in getting this replaced if this is what I am looking at. I will be replacing the heads as from my original post you can see that I had a crack in the left side. Again, I appreciate all of your tie in helping a newbie with all of this. I am getting this work done in the Memphis TN area. If anyone knows of a legitimate mechanic that you would back let me know. Thanks again.

Glow plugs are easy to locate and can be removed easy. The only problem is you need to be careful removing the glow plug harness. You could remove the harness but you would most likely damage the harness removing it. A diesel scan tool such as sct programmer and edge cts can provide information to narrow down your problem. There is a sticky about how to monitor your 6.0. My suggestion is to invest in a good monitor and programmer or by a monitor with a programmer. A new turbo, injectors, and oil coolers are nice but you need to know how to diagnose issues that come up with your 6.0. Check out the stickies on he 6.0 forums. There is a large amount of information in these stickies. As far as a good mechanic in Tennessee. See if you can not locate a club on the forum for Tennessee. Good luck.
