02 7.3 pouring oil out the engine.No start.

I have a 02 f-250 7.3 that began pouring oil out of the engine and the truck soon died. I had to have the truck towed and lets just say it was not a short tow distance at all. I am already in the hole and really would like to save the cost of a shop if at all possible. I am decently handy, however, I do have some mechanical limitations and some tool limitations. With that in mind any advice or help would be awesome.

So the truck has been having some noticeable oil leaks for awhile, but when I took it to the shop they told me a truck with 258k on it that was normal. I drove up to 9,000 feet for the 4th of july and she was struggling a little bit, but nothing too serious. I did have glow plug starting issues while I was up there, but I was able to plug it in and it ran just fine. On the way home today I only got 5 miles on the road when all the sudden the turbo seemed like it had no power and I could tell the engine was going out. I pulled over and as soon as I got to a safe spot oil poured out everywhere. It got on the windshield and all over the engine. I checked and it still said it have right below normal oil level. So I am thinking the shop I took it too may have overfilled it? I was thinking maybe the HPOP but I am not sure. I really don't know where to start looking or testing. Any help is much appreciated.

check your HPOP lines, those have a tendency to fail especially if they're factory

The pump itself could have failed anyway to check IPR%/ICP

Not that I know of. I do not have a comp that reads pressure or codes. Can you manually test it some how?

Having that big of a leak usually means hpo system. I would clean up as much oil as possible. Fill up the oil to full. Start the truck and look for leaks. It's either going to be the pump or the oil lines to each head. If it's the pump get the t-500 it's around $500 and the one from napa is almost $1000
