No acceleration above 30MPH and leaking oil.
So last week it snowed big time and my truck ran fine then.
So I started my truck yesterday (sitting 4 days) and it wouldn't, after about 10min it finally cranked over and the temp outside was hovering around 30, so shouldn't be no issue (Done it before).
When I started to drive when it was warmed up, around the 30MPH it stopped accelerating well it was accelerating but it was super slow to get to 50mph.
Fast Forward to today.
So I looked at my Boost hoses and I don't see any issues. I am currently removing the intake hoses to inspect the couplers (No rips or tears, so far)
Remove my air intake and looked at the turbo and the turbo propellers look alright.
I don't see any oil in my coolant, so that is good.
Next I check my dipstick and I couldn't see any oil on it. So I drain oil into my 15qt drain pain, huh I only get halfway after letting it drain for 10min (Usually it fills it up) Not sure how many, going to work on that tomorrow.
I see that I have a leak from the front of the engine underneath of it because it is soaked all underneath from oil big time.
Tomorrow going to remove the passenger side intake hoses to inspect that. Then I am going to start trying to clean all the oil up and see if I can see any coolant in the oil.
What else should I check out??
