Ok, so today i finished up my injector install. Then i cranked the truck, drove around for about 50 miles, got back to the shop, parked on a small incline at the door to the shop, after pulling in and walking back to the door i noticed a bunch of oil spots all over the ground. i had checked the oil level before leaving, it was about midway between add and full, when i checked after returning, i didn't really wait for the oil to settle and it read right at the add mark. then i topped it off to full and headed out, stopped again after about 15 miles, looked under the truck, dripping a little, but nothing ridiculous, checked the oil level, it was about 3/4 between add and full, so i contined my drive for another 35-40 miles, pulled up on a pretty steep hill, looked under the truck, lots of oil dripping down, pulled into a parkin spot, let the oil settle for about 20 minutes, checked it and it was at the add line and huge oil spots under the truck. looking under the truck, both sides of the engine are nice and wet, all the way back to the back of the transmission oil is dripping down. my original thought was that maybe oil i had purged from the cylinders after installing the injectors had set in the valley and was dripping down the back. there is a good deal of wetness under the turbo and i thought maybe the oil left in the cylinders while purging came through the exhaust and dumped out the waste gate (dunno if that's possible). looked all around the valve covers and don't see any wetness. while looking at the oil pan, it looks like some oil is coming out of the dipstick grommet, maybe i dislodged something when working around the dipstick while doing the valve covers? also, no HPOP codes in the computer. Need some help fast. Thanks a lot, sorry for the long post

Wash down the valley with water and simple green, dry it off and start looking at idle. If it’s at the dipstick it has to be pushed in the fitting on the pan there is an o-ring you may have dislodged. Or it could be the turbo o-rings if you had it off.
