Blown turbo seal??

Ok, I was towing my travel trailer, interstate speed, about 70ish, and my truck made a pop and started pumping massive amounts of white/blue smoke. I immediately pulled to the shoulder, truck ran and idled fine, all gauges were normal, temp was 189, oil temp was about 200, good oil pressure, no codes. Truck lost all boost and was dumping oil out of the exhaust. Anyway, after a 4 hour sit I had it towed 200 miles back home...



All inter cooler pipes were connected, and oil looked fine, as did coolant when I checked it on the side of the road. I'm going to tear into it in the morning, and while searching and looking, I'm guessing maybe I lost a seal in the turbo? Just wondering everyone's thoughts..



Truck has 197,000 miles, factory turbo. Has head studs, heads were trued, and new gaskets about 3 years ago. Has EGR delete, and oil cooler relocated. 6 new injectors at the same time, so it does have 2 old injectors still. FMIC was replaced as well and is a solid. It's a 2005 F350



I'm new here and any help is appreciated! Mike

At least it's puking oil out the turbine side and not the compressor, that would have been un-fun to stop. But if it ran and idled fine then your problem isn't from in the head/injectors, it's the turbo.

Yeah it's runs and idles fine, but when it let go it was a serious smoke screen!? It's dumping so much oil out the exhaust I really can't run it. I'm going to pull the turbo tomorrow and go from there.. Wonder what a good replacement turbo would be?

Rebuild kits can be had for $100 and change.. If you can tie your shoes you can repack the hot and cold side turbo seals.
