dark reddish oil in the exhaust side of my turbo???

My 2005 started blowing smoke real bad off and on so we pulled it in the shop for an egr delete,oil cooler replacement,stc,etc. and when we pulled the turbo apart we found a good bit of this dark red oil in the exhaust side of the turbo housing.Forgot to mention that we did the flushes and installed a coolant filter. Also noticed that when I tried to get into the pedal,I could here a sound like a higher pitched horn and the engine would shutter and when I floored it the problem would go away and it would run good until the next time I tried to get into it. Assumed it was a sticking a sticking unison ring. Can't figure out the noise though and now the oil problem. Any ideas would be appreciated-want her back on the road A.S.A.P.

Prior to this work, did you have ELC coolant in the truck? Seems to me that the ELC coolant could have contaminated the oil and gotten into the turbo that way.

Yea,we did the flush with Restore and VC-9 and then filled with Cat ELC,ran it for a week before it smoked so bad that we started tearing it down.I never had coolant puking from the degas bottle-the level would just drop and I would top it off every couple of days. The egr cooler was leaking bad. We put air to the coolant side of the egr cooler after we pulled it out and air shot out the exhaust side so I hope that's all of my problems and not the HG's.

More then likely it's just red coolant mixed with soot giving it a slimy oil like texture. When the EGR cooler blows it can pump alot of coolant thru the exhaust system. I'd just do the EGR delete and clean the turbo and you should be fine.

Thanks- makes me feel a little better. I have arp's to put in but I think we'll put her together and see how she runs. If I have to, I'll pull the cab and do the studs when I have more time.

I'll post again after we get my truck on the road in case anyone else has the same problems.

Well I have had my truck on the road now for around 1100 miles with no problems except for a miss at idle that went away on the next fill-up. Deltas are within 5-8 degrees at 65-70 highway speeds. Changing coolant filter tomorrow. Ended up doing egr delete,stc upgrade,blue spring,banjos,turbo oil lines,oil cooler,cat elc,and she runs absolutely perfect- more response and power.Next upgrade will be a new tuner when I can afford it.
