Another oil leak thread

So I bought a clean 06 king ranch last week and I'm loving it. After reading the "monitoring your psd" sticky I took notes and bought a DashScan and everything looks great.

I did notice that after a week of having it the truck has just started to leak oil in my drive way. It's my first diesel so I don't really know what I'm looking at. When I first got it there were no leaks now all the sudden it starts? Jeez just my luck. Anyway, I tried to snap some pics to post up hoping someone can maybe tell me what or where its possibly leaking.

Passenger side


Driver side. This plug seems to be leaking but I'm not sure it made all the other parts wet. Maybe it did though?


Also driver side.



One more thing, when im sitting at a stop light just idling the truck seems to fill with diesel fumes. It smells like fuel not exhaust. Is this normal?

Thanks guys

P.S.

Here is a quick pic of the truck

I called the dealership and they said since they give a 3 month/3000 mile warranty they will repair it ONLY if it's a covered part. Otherwise its 50 bucks just to look at it and give me an estimate. What wouldn't be covered?

Are you sure that is oil, and not fuel? Clean it up with some degreaser, do not to use high pressure water. And then check it out again.

Thanks for the reply! I don't think it's fuel. It doesn't really smell like diesel and it leaves dark spots on the ground. I cleaned it good and I still can't really tell where it's coming from.

Well there is the hpop cover and ipr under the turbo, and the turbo drain tube or oil cooler cover towards the front of the motor on top that I can think of that may leak. Other than that you have valve covers that are not common leaks.

Mine just started doing the same thing. I found a ripped upper hot side intercooler boot letting the oil from the ccv drip down the back of the block. I rerouted the ccv vent and got some riff raff boots and never had a problem since.

Just talked to the dealership. He says it's a charge air hose? Not covered under warranty. 260 bucks. Sigh..

That's an intercooler hose. Shouldn't be that expensive, but maybe with the parts AND labor... Glad to hear it isn't anything expensive.
