burning oil,,, lots of white somke

i got a 96 ford 250 with the 7.3 and we use it at the ranch before it was hard to started so we used eter and every time is getting worse and is really hard to get it running. but once is running it throws a lot of white smoke at idle and when you step on the gas it gets worse. the truck doesnt sound like is missing. but the ranch is about 40 miles away and every time we go and we come back it burns a lot of oil close to 10 litters every trip. i dont know if somebody can help us because here in mexico is really hard to find somebody that know about diesel trucks.

Thats ALOT of oil to be burning and honestly I wouldnt be driving it. Sounds like you got an issue with your injectors leaking or maybe your turbo. What lead up to this? Has it always been hard to start or did it just start recently? How many miles are on it?

burning that much oil-you run the risk of it going runaway. very, very dangerous situation. I'd check the o-rings, and the turbo for shaft play.

well we are not using the truck right now cuz the issue, and about the the miles i cant exactly tell you because this is the second motor on this truck. we checked the play on the turbo but it looks good not a lot of play but we thought maybe the seals went bad and the oil is going in the intake or exhaust and maybe that can be another reason for the truck to take a while to start cuz it takes longer to build oil pressure. and well i dont really know if that injectors can cause missing a lot of oil???

Remove the fuel filter cap. Is it black inside? Bad injector o-rings can cause massive oil consumption, and hard starts.
