Oil in turbo

My truck is misfiring real bad. It has pure gray smoke, oil in the turbo, oil in the cross over pipe, and oil in the exhaust side of turbo. Injectors are new. What could be the problem?

I would say that one of the injector O-rings are bad. Even though you just put them in, something could of went wrong with one of them.


Joe (CSIPSD) had something wrong with one of his injectors(cant remember exactly what). He had the same white-gray smoke. he had to drive some 60 miles to get to a town. Anyway long story short he blew up the motor!!! He might be along soon with some pics.

Did you torque the injectors? If so what to? Is there a knocking noise with the white smoke or just a miss fire? I'd say you have one that loosened up from not being torqued and it blew the copper gasket and then the lower o-ring and is dumping fuel into the cylender causing high compression and a knock/miss and the clouds of white smoke. This is exactly what Joe did to bust his #4 piston.
