Need help, 6.0 Running issues
This just happened out of nowhere today and I'm not really sure what the issue is.
I drove about 30 minutes from work to the town I live in, went to 2 different stores and the truck started and ran fine.
I go home to get ready to go to my girlfriends house and I go to start it and it starts and runs at about 250 rpms for about 3 seconds and dies.
I try again and same thing, so I let it cool off for a little while thinking maybe its the HPOP that died
It started sluggishly but eventually the RPM's came up to normal and it started idling normal. I give it some pedal and it revs up normal but then bogs down and goes back to a normal idle.
Then i shut it off and scanned for codes, all I got was for EGR because I have it deleted and I havent been running any tunes for a while because the vanes are stuck in my turbo and i havent gotten around to changing it out yet.
I start it again and look back and notice a pretty good amount of oil smoke is coming out of the stack at idle, so I shut it off.
Start it one more time and now theres no pressure on the dummy gauge in the cluster.
So to me this seems like multiple problems all happening at once, but it does seem like an oil issue somewhere
Any help and knowledge would be appreciated, this is my only means of transportation.
A little info on the truck
-It started to overboost about a month ago so I took the tune off and have been babying it, I have another turbo to put in, time hasnt allowed me to do so yet.
Haven't really had any other issues with the truck since I got it a year or so ago
