6.0 issues again

This time starting rough and the engine shakes in the lower rpms. It blows white smoke constantly and smells like raw diesel. Oil is bubbling out of the glow plug harness and dripping out of the exhaust pipe.
This is the video of it starting up. What could it be this time? Its a stock motor. No deletes of any sort

Time to change out the GP harness. The o-rings do leak as they deteriorate.

Can a O-Ring actually cause all those problems?

I would doubt that the o-rings are what is causing a problem, but like twoicebergs said, it woudn't be a bad idea to replace the harnesses and while you are at it, replace the glow plugs as well since its not much more effort to do. Being that it is cold, it is possible that it was just steam you are seeing. Are your sure that it is oil coming from the tailpipe and not diesel or condensation mixed with soot? Finally, it would probably be a good idea to check your FICM voltage during a cold start.

Edit* also, assuming your fuel gauge is correct, it is not good to run a diesel engine that low on fuel

I will be more complete. Oil out the GP harness is the seal on the GP harness.

What you think is oil out the exhaust is most likely fuel, water and soot. Since it smells like diesel and is somewhat white, you probably have stiction, a cracked nozzle or even a bad fuel injector O-ring or copper seal.

I have a feeling that there is an injector that has gone in it. That'll be #10 that I've had replaced. How big of a job will the glowplug harness be? I know its not good to have the fuel level that low, it was on a roadtrip home when it started to melt down. It sounds weaker when cranking, those batteries are brand new, and have at most 5 starts on them. Is that indicating something too? I hope the FICM isn't done for again either. I've had it replaced once and rebuilt once now. 3 EGR valves have gone and also a turbo up pipe.

Glow plug harness is inexpensive on ebay and not hard to replace even with minimal mech. skills.You will break the harness getting it off unless you have the special tool required, my buddy made a tool for it so it snaps right out.Very common for these to leak and or go bad. I believe there is a vendor on EBAY that sells both sides for 121.00 or so.

Alright, 4 glow plugs and a harness ordered. I'm hoping I don't have to do more injectors on this truck but judging by the way it's starting I think I have an injector gone again

I just took it in. They said the oil rail is grenaded and can't test for injectors yet
