Most likely you have cracked or leaking injector cups.

^^^What he said. Can you drive it? Probably. Would I? No. Just an opportunity for more damage.

Ok called a garage and they said they need to pull the engine for 1300. We don't need to pull the engine do we?

NO, Stay away from that place. There screwing you.

With the right tool you don't even need to pull the heads.

^^What he said. Multiple places to get or maybe rent a sleeve removal tool. It may be easier on you if the engine is out but not worth the time and effort.

you can buy the tools, sleeves and injector o-rings for less than what that shop is charging an have if fixed over a weekend, you can drive on it for a little while until it is fixed but the diesel will eat most of the rubber, thermostat gasket, and overflow tank if not treated asap.

this is the kit i bought, angelofish on ebay
7 3L 7 3 Ford Powerstroke Injector Sleeve Cup Removal Tool and Install Kit | eBay

he also rents the tool out for 200 with all the stuff you need to do the job. if you can change glow plugs you can do this job.
