Why does my 6.0 dielse blow blue smoke. on 2003 Ford F-350 Super Duty

6.0 diesel motor acts like it is flooding and blows blue smoke. It always happens when setting at a stop light or just idleing in gear, and then accelerating it blows the blue smoke. Gradually clears and runs o.k.

Sounds like you are getting oil into the turbo. Based on the info you are giving. How many miles on the engine?
