A lot of white smoke from exhaust!!

It’s my first 6.0 diesel. 2006 E-450. I noticed a little black smoke from the exhaust and thought it was normal. After about 30 miles, there was a quick mis in the engine then changed over to a lot of white smoke. I have fuel in the tail pipe and noticed I’m getting fuel in the oil too. The oil level on the dipstick is about a quart over the full mark. I had a Ford dealer diagnose it and said cyl. 3 had no contribution. I replaced the injector and still no change to the white smoke from exhaust.

Did the miss go away? Stock exhaust? You changed the oil, right?

If all the above are true, sometimes when excess coolant or fuel is sent through the exhaust, it pools and gets stuck in the cat and needs a few miles to burn off. How many miles have you driven?

In addition to the above, you can pull the glow plugs and crank the engine to see if another injector is a problem as well.

I hate to even suggest it, but you are sure that you replaced #3 (passenger side second one from the front)?

Everything is stock. Currently it has lack of power and a slight mis. I did change the oil with OEM oil, filter, and both fuel filters. There is still an abundance of white smoke and diesel fuel at the tail pipe

Yes. I did replace #3. It did have a crack on the injector tip and figured that was the problem. Could there be more than one? Can you explain a little more about checking the injectors by pulling the glow plugs? Thank You.

Low fuel pressure is the most common reason for cracked injector tips IMO. You probably should start researching fuel pressure gauges. That said, if it is low fuel pressure, you could have another injector problem.

When you replaced the #3, did you blow out the hold-down bolt hole so that no liquid was in it prior to bolting it down? What torque did you go to on the hold-down? Has your torque wrench been calibrated recently? Whose injector (brand and supplier) did you go with?

When you pull the glow plugs and crank the engine, it will "shoot out" any excess fuel that is in the cylinder so you can identify the proper injector. It will come out with enough force to injure you, so be careful. There are youtube videos on it. IIRC DieselTechRon has made one.

Another question from this post; there is 0 compression on cylinder 3. I’m still getting a lot of fuel in the oil. Is it possible I could have a bad piston to get 0 compression and fuel in oil?

Possible, yes -- but I have never had an engine blow a piston and not have a serious knock

You are checking compression thru the glow plug hole?

Are the valve covers off? would be good to look at the valve operation as you are cranking the engine over/ or running

In my defense, I was unsupervised

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

I did check compression through the glow plug. If I take valve cover off, will I be able to check the valves? Compression is going somewhere and I really don’t want to pull the motor. It is an E-450 so not a fun job. Where else can compression go besides the valves?
