Drive it down the road and will smoke like a pig, esp. when you get on it and when you come to a stop it'll still smoke blue for a few. Looks blue. Could be a lil white, can't tell but when you let it idle right after it'll clear up. Some times you start it cold and it'll smoke a blue-ish color. Soon as it starts and when you drive it not smoke as much. I'm dumb founded. I've had mechanics tell me oil cooler. I've had mechanics say turbo seals. I've had mechanics say head gaskets. I've herd injector seals. Can anyone help me out?

Sorry man, had to go through and plug in some punctuation. That was hard to read which made it hard to figure out what you were saying your issue is.

First question, you say you are burning oil. Are you actually losing oil or are you assuming that based on the smoke color?

Second question, is there any noticeable reduction in performance?

Its probably not a headgasket. They rarely fail on these engines. Is there a chip or any sort of tuner? When was the last oil change and what kind of oil was used?

To eliminate injector O-rings pull the fuel filter and check for oil in the bowl. It is more pronounced if the fuel tank is close to empty. Black fuel in the bowl indicates bad injector O-rings. If it looks like this pic you need a set of injector O-rings.

so the coolant problem is the water pump, me and my buddy got underneath and theres coolant on the hoses and front of the motor, the next day there was a puddle underneath so that problem is solved. we took off the boost tubes and there filled with oil.. turbo seals?? any one think the same and if I'm doing water pump and turbo i was thinking bought doing injectors seals glow plugs and valve cover harnesses all at once good idea or if its not broken don't fix it ? just figured while I'm in there and its all apart

the oil is in the intercooler pipes because the ccv vents into the intake.
now if you pull the downpipe and oil is going out the exhaust then you need a turbo rebuild

Not necessarily on the black fuel.

Pull one injector and observe the oring condition. I'm gonna say there are a few that are dry rotted.
