Oil in cylinders

Trying to pinpoint the white smoke and rough running of my 04 6.0. As stated before, while cold, getting white smoke out tailpipe & raw fuel. Pullin glow plugs as we speak, 2 and 4 are covered in oil, 6 and 8 are clean. Doing the d/s bank as i write. Any ideas? No codes. Bad injector o ring/failed injector?

Thanks guys!

How about the oil in certain cylinders? And I removed the egr valve and it is dry in there? Thanks for the quick reply!

The white smoke is steam from coolant i know that. Oil in the cylinders don't know?? I know they say to do the oil cooler when you do the EGR delete because if your ERG cooler is shoot 9 times out of ten the oil cooler is on the way!! Someone will post more info i am sure. I know mine smoked like a steam powered train and it was my EGR never looked at the cylinders .

I do not think it is the EGR if the valve is dry. A bad egr will usually look wet or like it was steam cleaned.

Raw fuel from a stuck open injector? Could oil be leaking into the cylinders from the glow plug connector inwards? Seems unlikely?

Dont think fuel would be white. More fuel = black smoke at least thats my understanding. And seems very unlikely??

White smoke is usually steam. When coolant is leaked into the exhaust, it vaporizes, or turns to steam, and comes out the exhaust.

Just checked scanner. At running temp, engine coolant temp is 176, engine oil is 110. Should there be such a difference between the two?
