Very hard start....and leaking oil

I have a 2003 f250 6.0 with 130XXX mi and just recentley I have been having issues with starting.. the only way it will start is if I put the pedal to the floor and it fires up and puffs black smoke. It also leaks oil out of a small spot in the back of the engine. no real power issues... has a loping idle when it is in high idle mode. ICP? FCIM? I know before I bought it they had just replaced the HPOP!

You need a monitor. Sounds like icp leaking. Pigtails are prone to failure on the 03 also. Load test your batteries, and perform ficm check procedure.
