E350 Starts hard, White smoke, no power on acceleration

Hi, new here, I recently purchased a e350 van, when i bought it i could not hear it run as it had 2 dead batteries, i put 2 new batteries in her, after a few turns of the key and some time trying to start, she finally fired, sat and idled beautiful for about a half hour. Today, i took her out for a ride, got to the end of the block all seemed good, hit the main road went to hit the gas, and she fell flat of her face, choked out and stalled.

It took me over an hour to get her running enough to get back home. This is where i noticed the excessive white smoke coming from the tail pipe, and a horrendous knocking noise coming from the passenger side of the engine.

I have never owned a diesel nor do i know much about them, i know the basics, and tomorrow im going to replace the fuel filter and check some of the connections under the hood for corrosion. I have no maintenance records what so ever. She has 300000, and sounds beautiful till under load.

Other info, new gas, full tank. I plan on doing an oil change tomorrow also, new air filters. 100% stock, no oil leakage by the turbo, no fluids mixing, oil is dirty but not contaminated. Also no Engine light, makes this a little harder to diagnose. When she does run correctly there is plenty of power, turbo sounds beautiful

With the back of the oil cap placed on the filler neck, it does not blow the cap off, i believe this is good indicating no blowby

Replaced fuel filter on engine and low pressure pump, engine seems more responsive but still bogs down under load
