Motor noise and smoke

Well while driving home last night truck was running fine got off the highway and she started knocking and a shaking also smelled burnt oil was close enough to home to drive also smoke coming out from under hood . I shut her down in the drive way sounded like the motor was under pressure. Went out this morning and checked the oil was down about 2qts filled her up and started her up still a loud knock and running real rough. I removed the oil fill cap and it is blowing out there is a lot of pressure. Does any one have an idea whats up before I start tearing in. Thanks

Well while checking over the oil and coolant again. I found a hole in the valve cover looked like it had been shot with a 38. So pulled off the cover and found a glow plug laying on the injector with the top missing. A $10 dollar fix got luck just threaded back in now might as well replace them all

The conector on the top of the glow plug is what went through the valve cover all that was left was the bottom half and the wire connector was crushed. At least the threads were still good and I was able to thread a new glow plug back in just need to make up a connector for the wiring. It looked like the plug just loosened up and came out. Lot of pressure in the cylinders hope this one stays little lock tite.

It was a first for me to but it is all that I can see that is wrong after replacing it started great and ran smooth. The only reason I looked at this was the hole in the valve cover. The lock tite is the same that I use on my bike and more than anything a little bit of feel good

Well the truck is running but now smokes on start up quite a bit I wonder if the pressure loss could have hurt the ring or any thing. She still runs smooth but I dont like unnessary smoke. Will have to do compression test and see.
