Fuel coming out of the muffler

There was fuel in the turbo and every time I start the truck, the idle is rough and fuel pours out of the muffler. And its an excessive amount!!!

Stuck injector?????????

If you have fuel out the exhaust, stop driving the truck until you fix whichever injector is stuck open.

Driving it with an injector draining on the piston could cause the engine to hydrolock, which will bend a rod.

Then you're buying a new engine too.

I'm not driving the truck at all. Just had to start it to show my mechanic what was going on. Idles real rough (about 1k) when it first starts, then slowly starts to calm down a lil. After about 30-40 secs, it drops down to about 500 rpm.

Don't want to steal the thread, but could I remove the glow plugs and see which one is wet to determine which injector is stuck open? No codes are present, and the nearest scanner which can do a power balance test is 45 min drive away?

I think that is a great idea if you don't have access to AE or something like that.
