White smoke, Major oil leak Need Help
I drive a F450 with 40ft gooseneck everyday(Hot Shot Service). Yesterday on my return trip I noticed smoke, gyeyish/white (fuel,burn the eyes smoke). The smoke got worse and then a pinging sound when I'd let off the throttle. Pulled over checked for leaks, none found but truck was idling rough. I assumed it was a failing injector and tried to make it home.Went a little further and pulled into truck stop. Turned off motor and checked fluids. Oil level o.k., no discoloration or contamination. Radiator fluid level o.k. no leaks. I decided to try and make it home. 10miles further down the road and the pinging/knocking noise stopped then much more smoke. Pulled over and noticed oil leaking from a ruber boot that has come unplugged. This rubber boot I'm talking about is below the valve cover 4 on each side of motor. Possibly glow plugs. Had my wife run out and pull me home with the F250.
Removed intake to turbo, no damage to fins or play when spining. Removed downpipe of turbo no oil just normal soot. Any help would be appreciated. Called Ford and they can't even look at the truck for another 2 weeks. Can't wait.
