Help stuck just south of Cincinnatti

o.k. newbie here so here goes my intro along with my problem, my name is Darrel, I'm a former auto mechanic, now Millwright for Ford MoCo I have a 2003 f250 w/ a 6.0L it has just under a 100k and to my knowledge is stock, I bought it 2 years ago with 72k on it and it's been running great the only mod I've done is the blue spring, now to the problem...while on vacation this week I went from MI to Gatlinburg TN ran great, then from TN to KY again no problems, on friday morning I got up to drive to see my uncle and the truck was running rough, thought I picked up some bad fuel in TN, met my parents at my uncles and then they followed me about 20 minutes away to my Aunts house. my dad said my truck was smoking, after leaving her house going back to motel, (this is E. KY very hilly) I noticed a lot of black smoke, way more than I had ever seen, stopped at gas station and put some cetane boost injector cleaner in didn't change anything, headed home today and the longer I drove the worse it got went from black smoke to blueish grey to white, coolant level is good, oil level is good, truck stop mechanic says I'm burning oil through my intake, smoke also now seems to be coming from under the hood from behind the tubo, any help as to a place near Florence KY, that can fix this, don't want to pay to have to tow it all the way back to Detroit. thanks, D.

Maybe the seal on your turbine wheel in your turbo blew out. If you are burning oil I would say at least the seal is gone. Do you have any codes? Welcome to the org. By the way.

no check engine light, so I'm assuming no codes

The check engine light might not come on. Check the top of your turbo and bottom where your oil supply line is and return for oil . Look under your turbo for oil. Is there any oil coming out of your exhaust manifold or is all coming out of the down pipe from your turbo. If you have a leaking turbine seal I do not know if it is safe to drive. You could blow the hole seal and pour oil in your exhaust pipe then you are stuck on the side of the road. Maybe some one with some personal experience will chime in.

If it is running rough, I would say it is a fuel/injection problem and going to a capable shop to have scanned would be a good idea. It could be any number of things like a FICM, IDM, injector, IPR, fuel pressure, etc.

Still might be bad fuel and you need to change both fuel filters and a drain of the water/ fuel separator... Good luck and

well here it is a broken injector on the #7 cylinder the other part is somewhere in my engine, not liking where this is going. My mechanic is telling me that the other part has damaged the head and the piston, may need a new motor, this sucks anyone know what a non running 10 yr old truck is going for? I could probably scrap it out but that's a whole lot of work I don't have room or time for.
