FUBAR Leaking oil and white smoke
I have a 2004 Ford 6.0L that died while driving a couple days ago. The
engine all of a sudden quit and when I tried cranking it felt like it
was hydrolocked. I let it set for awhile and tried cranking again and
it would start up but with excessive white smoke and oil leaking out
of the turbo into the exhaust. It will run for about a minute and stall, then I go through the whole process over again. When it runs the leak is terrible, it will dump 2-3 cups of oil out onto the florr in the munute or so it will run. I posted another thread before this where I thought it was the FICM. I got one from swamps and I get voltage now and it fixed the problems with me blowing the 50A fuse. I think I might have shorted the original one out when I checked for voltage originaly. So back to square one! I have replaced the ICP sensor, checked and cleaned the IPR screen, checked the IPR and found there was a bad o-ring, and nothing has result from any of this. Since, I have taken of the turbo and found that the oil and white smoke are coming out of the y-pipe. the codes I am getting now are (P0671 GPCM Cylinder 1 glow plug circuit Circuit open, short to ground, short to voltage, faulty glow plug).
The only thing I can think of is that the o-rings on the injectors are shot which is allowing oil into the cyclinder resulting in the hydrolock symptom. I'm getting real burned out with this now after 14+ hours of research and work...
