I think I just BLEW

Driving down a dirt road about 30 mph... no issues, no high temps nothing. Went to pass another car and noticed A LOT less power... wtf I thought... this isnt good. Slowed down to look at some moose with the ol lady and noticed engine was camming really bad... but no white smoke. Went hunting all day and came back to the truck... started up really ruff and started blowing white smoke.... backed out of the ditch I parked in to get a tow strap on it. Truck almost wouldnt pull itself out of the ditch.
Oh and the degas bottle is EMPTY...

I'm in a really remote spot in AK and its gonna cost like 600 bucks jsut to get it to anchorage to get it worked on. Does this sound like head gaskets????? I wanna buy all necessary hardware before hand so the stealership can't get me for em.


So far on the list is:

-GOGO stg 1 intake manifold/egr delete
-arp's


What else... not injectors or turbo at this point... just want it back to DD status.

Re: I think I just BLEW

well if im gonna take it to the shop and have them fix this I mise well get the ARP's and all that jazz done too. I wanted to do that in the future anyways. I guess what I'm really concerned about is if its a fuel related problem. It wouldn't blow white smoke if an injector O-ring or something went out would it?

Re: I think I just BLEW

Have you had injectors replaced recently? O-rings don't normally "go bad" on our trucks. If if they did the truck would chug white smoke like a choo choo train and would hardly run if at all.

You could have a combination of issues which isn't uncommon.

It would be gray/white smoke and it would burn your eyes if it was fuel. and it wouldnt be eating coolant.

Re: I think I just BLEW

Ok well I've been power searching/reading on here... and it seems that since its eating coolant, its either gaskets or cooler, so im gonna solve those two to start with... and if its injectors, mise well just plan on two black eyes from the boss.

Called a shop up here in AK.... 5 grand and they will stud it and delete it. The front desk didnt know what delete kit they used.

Seem a little steep???

Re: I think I just BLEW

What would happen if gas was put in instead of diesel... theres a possibility that the wife did that. Could I just extract the gas out of the tank and fill it all the way up with diesel and let it run until the gas is out of the lines. She did fill it up about 15 miles before it started driving weird.

Would this cause a ruff idle and white smoke?

If it was... should I could drain the fuel tank, drain the fuel bowl and replace the filters?
