6.0L No Start

Hello, I've been having a ton of issues with my 6.0L lately. Had an oil leak on the HPOP cover, while they had that opened I had them replace the oil cooler. Got it back, ran fine, a couple weeks later turbo froze up, they took it apart and cleaned it and its working fine now. Current issue started Friday with a sudden loss of power and a ton of gray and black smoke, once that cleared the truck ran fine. Got to the point of not being able to clear, so I unplugged the EGR valve and that got me home with truck running fine, planning on having it replaced this week. Today I started the truck, moved it about 50ft so I could plow snow. Started it up to move it back, got about 40 ft and it died like I turned off the key and now won't fire.

I unplugged the ICP sensor, but that didn't work. I checked the fuel switch under the glove box. I plugged the EGR valve back in. The oil gauge on dash goes up to middle position on about the 2nd engine crank. I live about 35 miles away from the dealer, a tow is going to suck. If I have to have this turbo pulled for the 3rd time in less than 6 weeks I am going to freak out.

Is there anything I can do or am I hosed? I don't have a scanner, so I can't read codes.

btw, when I say "once that cleared", I mean I would throw it into neutral and give it some fuel and it would stop blowing smoke and appear to run okay, I'd put it back in gear and drive as normal.

Dealer said the fuel appeared to have gelled a bit, and the fuel filters were clogged. Back up and running.
