Injector O-rings

I have been getting some white smoke lately on start ups and when I get on the go peddle. I have also noticed that I am losing a little bit of oil since my last oil change. It is not drinking it down, but I can notice it on the dipstick that is has lost some. Have been reading other threads on here and I am thinking that my injector o-ring(s) are going. My question to you guys is how hard is it to change these out? And about how much will a dealership charge to change out the o-rings?

I have never changed or pulled injectors before so this is new territory to me and I am wondering if it is something I can do myself or if it would be best to have a mechanic do it. Any feedback will be helpful, I just want to get this fixed.

injector o-rings arent that hard but if not done right you take a chance of hydrolocking the engine , if not drained properly, once the injectors are out replacing the o-rings is easy , and also once back in make sure they are tight , if you decide you want to do it yourself , pm me and ill guide you thru it

Yeah that is the one thing that I don't want to have happen, hydrolocking the engine. That is what makes me a little leery about attempting this. By the way, you do engine work on diesels correct? How much would you charge for something like this? If need be you are only a 3-4 hour ride from me and I don't mind the driving.

That doesn't seem as much as I thought it was going to be. Let me see how the next few weeks treat me money wise and I will pm you and let you know what I have come up with.
