Re: Exhaust leak by turbo
I have a 95 f350 power stroke. I've only owned the truck since October of last year and this forum has help me so much already. I have stumbled upon an issue I can't seem to resolve with simple searches though. When I start the truck and the ebpv
closes you can hear a very loud hissing from under the hood. I know this to be an exhaust leak on the exhaust side of the turbo. I did some "trying to find the leak" testing by having a friend start the truck and me running my hand all around and behind the turbo. Well it feels as if the leak is coming from under the turbo close to where the pedestal is. Is it common for the gaskets where the exhaust part bolts up to leak? I'm pretty sure it's not the up pipes. What's some other ways to pin point my leak? Any advise is welcome. Thank you
Check your up-pipe donughts that are near the turbo flange. Both of mine were leaking.
