Worried about my truck

Hey guys, I just would like some of your guys input on this. I have an 08 6.4l powerstroke. It's got 136k miles and I'm the 3rd owner. I got a crazy good deal on it but it was a little beat up. It was smoking white when I bought it, and it had a small oil leak. I fixxed the white smoke, it was just a bad MAP sensor. Then I fixxed the oil leak (leaking out of rocker box). Well anyway everytime I get out after driving it, it smells really hot, I don't seem to know why. It has normal coolant levels and oil, and I don't lose any fluids. It runs great, really powerful, and smooth. But when I check for blow by, although it doesn't splatter any oil, it smokes a lot. Also I look into the turbo and it's nasty, black residue going in and out of it. I'm just worried on the condition and hoping there's nothing majorly wrong..

sounds like blow by and the 6.4 is known for having more than most

that would also explain the turbo

maybe look into a CCV reroute ???

What exactly does that re route do? And if my truck has blow by, it doesn't mean it's on it's last legs or anything does it? I mean I understand you have less compression but I don't see how I have as much power as I do, when I have as much blow bye as I do

U block it on the side opposite of where u put your oil in. Then run. Tube from where it comes out of the filler tube down the motor and most go down the frame toward the rear. Search CCV mod. Bunch of good write ups on it

Yeah I looked it up, and it seems like a might as well do it. Also I'm getting a tapping sound on passenger side, along with a popping coming threw the intake. I'm starting to think I have a rocker arm that's bad, although when I pulled the valve cover everything seemed fine, but I wasn't looking to hard

My guess would also be rocker arms...i maybe worng, but i believe I have read on here due to oil dilution from the DPF still being on the truck that the rocker arms tend to start having problems around the 100K mark.
