Turbo Leaking Oil into intake

Hey Powerstroke Lovers! I am having some trouble with my 6.0 unfortunately. I pulled my egr valve a while ago and it was all gooey in there, so we pulled out the egr cooler and pressure checked it to 60 psi and it was fine! No leaks and held pressure for days with no problem. Went ahead and replaced it with a bullet proof egr cooler anyways. When I inspected the intake manifold I noticed something strange. Where the egr entered the manifold, it was absolutely dry. Then once it entered the manifold it turned nasty and gooey. The egr cooler was perfectly dry too. I also noticed there was oil all in my intake tubes and turbo. So to sum it up my turbo is leaking oil into the intake, and alot! I did an oil change too and only half came out what should have come out, litterly I used a 5 gal bucket and it wasn't even a quarter full. On a 5000 mile interval. How do I stop my turbo from leaking? I appreciate your help. Thank you, Ben

The crank case vent is plumbed to the intake tube, just upstream of the turbo. All 6.0s get some residual oil from the CCV into their inlet tubing. Just how it is. People do different variations of the CCV mod to eliminate the oil build-up, and it works pretty well. That being said, sounds like you are losing more than just a very small amount. Hopefully a tech will chime in with some more knowledge for you, as it sounds like you have a bigger issue. I've personally never heard of a turbo leaking to the intake(???), but that doesn't mean it can't happen. Good luck.

if its leaking that much it sounds like its time to rebuild the turbo.

Is it possible the turbo is not draining the oil fast enough or the drain is clogged?

thats what it sounds like to me. you can pull the down pipe and see if there is any oil, but when mine was bad i couldnt tell. i only knew for sure once i split the turbo open.

its not a difficult job to rebuild it, but it is time consuming.

Get your used oil sample analyzed. You could have crankcase dilution of the engine oil by overly rich fuel-air mixture or just incomplete combustion due to lack of compression caused by excessive blow-by. The oil analysis will provide more substantive answers than speculation if only to eliminate potential points of failure.

Good luck!
