Decent oil leak Blown turbo or seals or more?
I started my truck this morning and let the truck get up to 140F before I left the house. I didn't even make it a mile when I noticed it was smoking profusely out the tailpipe when a car pulled up behind me. I made it to the next street where I turned off and popped the hood it smelt like oil in the engine bay. My truck is fully deleted and am venting into the atmosphere with a 1" hose and I noticed that it still had built up pressure inside the oil fill which I don't think it ever has. I saw some oil residue in the hot side pipe and copious amounts of oil in the exhaust. I don't know enough to definitively tell if it is just a seal or one of my turbos blew or if this is something worse? I don't beat on my truck ever and rarely get on it but I keep within safe paramaters.
Thank you to all who help and can tell me where to start with this. I don't have a garage so I can't do much until I get to one.
P.S. Truck has no loss of power from what I could tell, has no missing or odd feel to it, coolant still looked like it should.
