LOTS of smoke and a slight knock

Ok so my truck has been running fine since the last time it broke down 2 weeks ago.

I was driving to work and one I pulled off the highway it seemed a little smokey. I realized I left my glow plugs on, I have a manual switch, I dont think this can be an issue my glow plugs were stuck on for the last 10,000 miles thats why I have a switch. I flipped em off and no change.

By the time I got to the shop it was puking out so much grey black smoke I immediately shut it off. It smells almost like a 2 stroke mixed with diesel it is hard to explain.

I restarted it and there was a slight pinging and then it went away and all the smoke started.

My turbo is newer and the oil level is still dead on full. Could it be an injector issue?

Mine stay smokey and stinky even after it warmed up. I am thinking the extreme cold maybe caused it to shrink up and crack.

I didnt let my truck warm up as long as I should, only 3 or 4 minutes, I was in a rush so maybe it caused an issue.

There could be a ton of problems to cause clattering. Its the smoking that is my issue.

I am going to pull the injectors out on Monday so I will find out if they are bad.

If the orings are bad is it noticeable? I just hope it is not a bad nozzle.
