Engine won't run, lots of white smoke
I have a 2000 F-450 diesel 200,000 miles.
While driving at 55 mpg my truck started to slow down (pedal pressed down the whole time), I slowly came to a stop on the shoulder.
I could start it on the shoulder for a few seconds and it would blow a lot of white smoke. I had it towed to my shop. I've tried to start it, it runs for a few seconds (once I got the engine to run for about 1 minute) white smoke everywhere...
Someone told me it's the turbo, does that should right? I would think the engine would at least idle. What about injectors? IDM?
The batteries died, so I lost any codes.
One thing to note, before this happened I noticed the truck was blowing a little white smoke while I was idling at red lights....
