Question Exhaust leak on 04 Powerstroke

I have a exhaust leak on the drivers side of the motor on my 2004 6.0 Power stroke. I have a lot of soot under the hood and have a strong exhaust smell coming into the cab. I have not been able to find the source and do not want to pay $100 per hour for some still wet behind the ears kid out of tech school try and find it at the dealership. Is there any common area for leaks on my truck I should look? Any help would be appreciated.

Your turbo exhaust y-pipe is cracked at the flex joint.

Yep ya can pretty much take that to the bank, a common failure point is that flex joint.

Will this also effect fuel milage and is there a recall out for this issue?

M-chan is correct, the flex section is a typical failure, you can fix it with our up pipe, and block off the exhaust gases from entering the EGR cooler; First Coast Diesel Performance -Solid Up Pipe- Your Source For Powerstroke Performance
