Broken rocker arm and push rod.
Its been a while since I have had to post but this one has me really wondering. I bought a 04' F250 with 240,000 miles from an auction and am finding lots of fun issues. I had rough idle and shaking at low RPM 45-60 MPH. Pulled Unbalanced contribution cylinder 3 code...did some searching and came to conclusion it was an injector. So I tore into it and found exhaust rocker arm broke and dug two halves of the intake push rod out.
So my question is where do I go from here? What may have caused the issue? I know nothing about the history of the truck and to the best of my knowledge it is completely stock. I did also pull an EGR code, the oil dummy needle drops to zero after reaching operating temp and when pulling the hose for MASS air sensor the fitting was plugged with a dry sludge.
Also are there supposed to be 2 tubes that run through the head for the high pressure oil? I had a friend who has worked on these before say there is supposed to be 2. I have one in the back but nothing in the front and no clue where it would be if it isn't in the hole.
Thanks ahead of the time for advise.
