glow plugs preheat the fuel to help the engine start.....when its hot outside its not that bad...the colder it gets the harder it will be to start with bad glowplugs..

sounds like u had a oil pump go bad
if motor ceased it junk now but with this truck only having 72000 miles on it i would put a new motor in it if you do decide to put new motor in it and plan on doing that kind of towing i highly recomend puting a oil cooler on it and high voulme oil pump if this truck has a factory oil cooler that in the radaitor i recomend u disconnect that one and put a aftermarket cooler on it if u do decide to reuse old oil cooler make sure you blow all the old oil out of cooler because it probley has **** in it from motor seizeing

Not good, I was hoping it was the transmission cooler, but,,,, Get it to a radiator shop and have them check it. It might run fine for weeks , but it will give up the ghost soon. It is most likely a head gasket. Keep an eye on the temp gauge, don't let it over heat, and keep an eye on the coolant level. And the oil. The radiator shop will do a compression check. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: oil leak
It's not uncommon for these little engines to burn oil. Now granted, that is an excessive amount, the engine should be looked at and tested for worn rings and valve guides.
