Did some more work to the truck today..

OK... i went after the gally plug at the back of the head today to find that it is DRY all around it, there is oil in the gally its self though, THe truck is running VERY ruff and just blowing thick white smoke, and dripping oil that is coming down inbetween the engine and the tranny...

Where should i go from here? Thanks!

~Aslo the truck WILL not start unless i plug it in
~runs very ruff
~no matter how far i push the pedal down it will only travel to a little over 1k
~ i dont know much about PSD's at all, but if it was a gas motor i would be sure a rod was coming out the block the way this thing sounds under any load.

you probably have a line or plug leaking down in the valley. powerwash all the oil out then dry it out. have some one start the truck up and watch to see if you can trace where it is comming from. It could be something all the way in the front of the engine running back and dripping down. sometimes its tuff to see with so much stuff packed in there.

It may be a fuel leak, that mixing with years of crud in yhe valley looks like oil till it makes it to the ground. I'd pay attention to the area around the fuel filter bowl. If it's getting air or loseing pressure it would explain the poor running.

'00 cc f 350 a few mods, and a bts tranny.
