6.0 Oil Leak at turbo

Truck leaks oil right under the turbo you can see a small puddle, replaced turbo drain o-ring and still leaking the mechanic I use works at ford is acting like he's stumped only leaks down the back of the motor while the truck is running and for a couple mins after it shuts off any suggestions here? 05 6.0 110k miles

Re: 6.0 Oil Leak at turbo

maybe the HPOP cover leaking. unless you can see it on the drain tube. there's a o-ring on both ends.

Re: 6.0 Oil Leak at turbo

STC fitting? I was having a similar problem. Didn't think much of it at first. Truck shut down 30 min outside of Vegas. 600 dollar tow service to 1000 dollar repair.

STC fitting would create a internal oil leak.

Maybe pull a inner fender well then you can see the back of the engine better.

Re: 6.0 Oil Leak at turbo

I mangled the lip of drain tube refitting the turbo causing a leak, quite oblivious it was dripping down the tube.
