blowin smoke and shakin

OK lets see if I can break this down so its all here, its a 6.4 all stock, started stumbling and "missing" after pulling out into traffic hard. the idle is a rough shake now and is also blowing a white/grey smoke not blue. It does not smell sweet like coolant. have not lost any coolant or oil nor oil in coolant or vice versa. but my oil does seem to smell strong of diesel now. it seems to have a rev limiter at times but not always. I took it to a shop that works on my big rigs and they connected a laptop to it and the coded that came up where. **continuous memory codes -fix last**, p0275 cylinder 5 contribution fault, p0305 cylinder 5 misfire detected, p0272 cylinder 4 contribution balance fault.
** engine running codes-fix second** p0275 cylinder 5 contribution balance fault, p0272 cylinder 4 contribution balance fault, p2263 tc/sc boost system performance. Any ideas?

Injectors. If you are smelling fuel in your oil, I wouldn't drive it till you pull the injectors and have them all tested because it sounds like you have an injector leaking excessive fuel. You don't want to hydrolock your engine, you could break something!

well here's where I'm at now, took it to shop and they said number five is the definite culprit. they pulled glow plug and ran a compression test on it and it came back 0 psi. told me glow plug was saturated in oil. they blew air through it and it came out the oil cap. mechanic says he is sure it is a melted/blown piston but he hasn't removed head yet. or valve cover. any ideas?.... or is it sounding the same to you guys a blown piston?

does sound like you need a new engine. if you pull the dipstick i bet its way past the full mark you can thank you emissions for that....even if I lived in a state that did testing id still take that junk off

Well guess my piston is fried. Really sucks cause I didn't even make my first payment on my $20,000 truck and now I need a $16,000 engine plus $2,100 labor. Now my dilemma is do I let the bank take the truck back and destroy my credit and life for the next 10 years. Or let it sit for 6 then buy an engine

There is a place in college station, TX that was advertising rebuilt 7.3, 6.0, 6.4 on Craigslist for 4500.00 might be worth giving them a look! Check college station Craigslist under auto parts. Hope this helps.
