Hurt the motor

09 6.4
5" db
Egr blocked off
Ran the 275 a while put the 300 on the night before it broke.

Was on it before work, got out of it and it died .... it sounded like a head gasket and didn't blow any glow plugs .. I plan on pulling the cab. I decided to pull the glow plugs and they're covered in oil. Is that normal when you pull them out like the 7.3?

That sure isn't a lot of information regarding the failure...

Yes, glow plugs will look like that when you pull them regardless of engine health.

What do you mean 'it died'? Stalled?

Yes it stalled . I wasn't really asking for a diagnosis ... thanks, just wondering about the plugs . I know its not that easy .. only thing is it had a external noise like a head gasket

Not sure what you mean by external noise?

Typically these engines during a head gasket failure just push compression into the cooling system.

Just trying to save you some work. If it stalled and didn't restart, I'd do a little more digging than condemning the engine right away. Just my .02

Went from normal sounding motor , to a loud miss on each rotation like a head gasket or a leaky manifold.

Compression test first. Start simple before you start ripping things apart.

Ok enjoy & take your time and mark zip lock bags for small parts & bolts.
Takes more time, but makes it easier to put back together.
