'08 smoking like a freight train and blowing oil out the exhaust.
I bought this '08 F250 a few weeks ago at an auction and it was smoking a little so I knew it needed some work. I went to pick it up today to try and drive it home but it smoked so bad after 2 miles, I turned around and parked it again. Two things I noticed were the temperature gauge never went above the half way point so I doubt it would be the head gaskets, and second, when I parked it, motor oil was coming out the tail pipe and the drain hole in the back muffler. I'm pretty sure at least a whole quart if not two in that short drive was blown out. What would that indicate? A bad turbo seal especially since it's not making any boost? Broken rings, but it runs and idles smooth? What do you think?
