Sounds like that motor is trashed... Lack of lubrication from fuel dilution will cause oil to leak from many places being burn or pushed out of the exhaust and ventilation tubes. You probably just cost yourself 10k in repair bills

If your injectors are bad you might of had one of the return lines start leaking, which will fill the crankcase with fuel which drains into the oil. Then with that happening for a time that will cause all types of problems.

I'm leaning with the fact you say there are metal shavings in the oil that you prolly put off that injector job too long, injector cups leaked fuel into crankcase, and engine has pooped the bed from oil dilution.

let us know.... I'm interested..
