2004 6.0 powerstroke Massive Oil Leak

I have a 2004 F350 with the 6.0. The truck has 400,000km. Never had a problem before but I noticed a oil leak a month ago nothing bad. The truck runs great but once it warms up in starts pouring oil. It drives fine while oil is cold but once it starts leaking truck has no power at all. I know its probably a high pressure oil leak. Any ideas on what I can check. Thanks

Re: 2004 6.0 powerstroke Massive Oil Leak

High pressure leaks are generally not external.

You need to tell us what area of the engine the oil leak is coming from (front, back, high, low, in the engine valley, etc).

Re: 2004 6.0 powerstroke Massive Oil Leak

Its on the passenger side. The oil is coming down the crack in between the trans and engine. The reason I thought it was a high pressure oil leak was because of the constant oil drip.

Re: 2004 6.0 powerstroke Massive Oil Leak

The oil leak is coming from a higher point on the engine in the rear passenger side. Oil seems to find its way on to the crack where the engine and transmission conect. From what I am seeing it seems to be coming from underneath the turbo.

Re: 2004 6.0 powerstroke Massive Oil Leak

Common leak points in that general area are CAC tubes (the tubes get saturated with oil from the ccv system and then they leak), oil pressure switch (that is a little further away), turbo oil supply / drain.

IMO, you should clean it all real good and then drive it awhile and then begin the detailed inspection.

Re: 2004 6.0 powerstroke Massive Oil Leak

I pulled the turbo and its stand. Lots of oil and sediment in there. I will continue to clean it up during the week and then put it back together. Planning on buying some degresser and spraying it down then pressure washing the back side of engine. I am planning to put everything back together and do another run with it hopefully it will leak again and I can find the source. I am looking at the top plate of the HPOP. Should I be replacing any gaskets right now or should I continue my plan and put everything back together and start replacing from there? Thanks

Re: 2004 6.0 powerstroke Massive Oil Leak

I forgot to add that the early model year ICP can leak a ton of oil also. It is the exception to "most HPO leaks being internal".

Re: 2004 6.0 powerstroke Massive Oil Leak

Do you have a sensor on your passenger valve cover right behind the glow plug module?

Like this?

If not, it's an early model and will be located on the backside of the HPOP cover.

Like this, it's the sensor on the right.

You might also check the HPOP cover, mine had a crack in it and I had oil in the valley and down the backside.
