New to Forum. I need 6.0 oil leak help

Hello, im new to the forum. I have a 2004 Ford F-250 Turbo Diesel with the 6.0 Crew cab 4x4. Lifted 6 inches at least i need to check it. Banks six gun on the dash with gauges etc. banks intake and Banks monster exhaust. Rancho shocks and dual steering stabilizers. This is my first diesel and for a dude that just turned forty i should know more about them. Any way i know nothing about them or the banks goods that are on it etc. I bought it from a older man that had all this money in it and never drove it. It has about 45000 miles on it and is mint. The problem im haveing is there is a small oil leak or two and with this low of miles?? are these trucks prone to this or?? I know you cant see it in front of you but maybe you guys have some suggestions about this. Thanks. Bryan S

Welcome to the org. I've read about some oil leaks. Some are no big deal. To get help they will need to know more about where the leak is located. On the bright side, you should be under waranty as long as you go to a mod friendly dealer.

the 6.0s do have some trouble spots with oil leaks, Ive only got 70,000 on mine and have had a couple as well. like wt said some are no big deal others are more of a problem,depending on the location of the leak.

I have a 2005 F350 6.0; in a similar situation; I just purchased mine and it has a very small oil leak when you shut it off. It will drop about two dime size drops and that's it. I checked the oil and found it way too full; I went to the dealer and they changed and lowered the oil level.

These engines have vents on them for overpressure in the oil compartment and they suggested that was what was probably happening to me. I'm going to give it a couple of days and if the leak is still occuring take it in for powertrain work (i only have 51K miles).

My leak was on the front of my block near the vent and drain plug area; on the 6.0 all of the high pressure oil lines are on the rear of the engine, so once again it depends on where you're leaking at.

1. Check your oil level; too much can kill these engines quick.
