Unhappy 7.3 power stroke 1996

Hello I am tring to help my husband he is not a computer person but we bought this truck from his uncle and there has been nothing but trouble, I know never buy from family,, well he cant seem to figure out''' why fuel keeps getting into the oil??? I ask him if there is anything he has tried to do and he said no he doesnt know what to do, it is a cool looking truck and he has already spent 1500.00, he had different sections of wiring harness replaced, put a used drivers module on, put 2 new injectors on it didnt change anything so the mechanic took them out. The truck leaks fuel into the oil pan and it wont run. It is letting fuel into the oil and he doesnt know why? And when my husband first took it to the mechanic it didnt leak fuel and it smokes, so can anyone help please he is beside his self on what to do..once again thank you for any help

You might want to put this in the right forum to get more view. but welcome to the garage. Have they checked the compression? It sounds like a few injectors are messed and just putting to much fuel in the cyliders and passed the rings to the fuel.
