Question Motor Died, Fuel filter full of Oil?

I have a 1999 Powerstroke with just under 400,000. Is still a great truck and my regular driver. Not surprised that it uses some oil but has started drinking it and smoking...Both bad habits. This morning I cranked it up and left it running to warm up while I went inside. When I went back out it had died and would not crank back. I decided to change the fuel filter as it had been a while. It was full of Oil?? Where did it come from? I drained it, put in new filter, filled it with fuel as it would not fill with pump as normal. Has my fuel pump gone out and
if so where is it located? And where did all the oil get into the fuel system?
Thanks for any help.

Yeah, its the injector O rings, now to find out which one it is, as far as I know, there is no narrowing it down. IIRC, you will have to re ring them all. I mean you could try to do one side so you don't have to dig through to the valve cover and everything, but you might as well go ahead and buy a set of the o rings and do them all.
