alot of fuel in my oil. headgaskets gone?

My dad has a 09 with 48k miles on it the fuel n oil filters have always been change at 4500miles on he dot .

The truck is 100% stock because we are still in the last few months of warrenty.

What happened was we were driving around n all of a sudden the truck got a real rough idle, the truck started drinking fuel n the engine light came on n reduced engine power flashed up but when ford scanned the code no code popped up so we brought it back home n when we went to try n diagnose the issue we dropped the oil a ton of fuel was mixed in with it so we r thinking headgaskets what do you guys think?

Because of the regen process fuel in the oil is common. It is often referred to as "making oil". The only real solution is to change oil more frequently or delete. It is uncommon for a stock truck to blow the head gaskets.

4500 miles on oil changes seems acceptable with regens going on. Sounds like an injector gone south

an injector is another possibility especially since you stated it has a rough idle. I guess it depends on how much fuel was in the oil. Do you have white smoke at start up?

A lot of white smoke. And the egr cooler and egr was replaced 8k miles ago. It was fixed under warrenty by ford

The injectoes was the only other thing I was thinking of

Yup sounds like an injector. It is worth getting fixed asap. Last thing you want is for it to melt a piston.

Personally I would stick with stock injectors. Most people have a hard time maintaining rail pressure with anything over stock injectors. You would need to upgrade the fuel system (dual fuelers).
