f350 wont rev up past a 1k and other problems

Hey guys im new to the diesel forum and this is my first self owned diesel and im very happy with it even though i dident drive yet lol. Ok im try to explain the issues im having.I just bought this truck its a 1999 f350 single wheel 4x4 crew cab long bed with 8 in lift sitting on 38s.truck is pretty much motor stock besides the aftermarking intercooling pipping. Know when i bought the truck there was no working guages or anything but i figured that out (broken wire under dash). There is also a broken line on passenger side that i connected a hose to and when i start truck it blows some white smoke and that line spits out diesel. i Have no idea were that line went to but when truck is started it wont rev past about 1100 rpm even when to the floor and then it breaks up. Im not to sure were to go from hear so any ideas will help. And let me add im a college student so im on a super tight budget thanks guys.

if that line is mounted to the pass side of head, in the "valley" of the motor, well, its the fuel line to feed the p/s head. If so, is it cracked where it goes thru a "P" clamp? Either way, need to replace it, bud. Get that fixed and probably your rpms will top out.

Can u post pic of line broke?

Yeah, when the truck is lacking fuel they will smake greyish, brownish, white. If you are leaking fuel then you are probably getting air in the fuel system which is not good for a diesel. Post a picture of this line that you are talking about so we can see what you are dealing with. You will be happy with this truck especially with those tires. If it was a gas job you would have to get a third job to keep the tank full. Also, get that fixed before you run it too far. Air in the fuel system will really shorten the life of the injectors, which cost much more than injectors for gas engines.
