does the inspection cover pop off with like a small screw driver?

what do I look for once its open?

I did some research on the bedplate so im gonna try and check around the motor more but im just not sure I want my engine ripped out and torn down that much for 2 small strips of permatex...

anyone have any other tips other then just looking for oil leaks? im posative its not trans fluid

1. bed plate
2. rear main seal
3. maybe some small o rings
4. glow plug harness
5. dip stick o-ring
6. turbo

any other ideas?

Check the turbo oil drain tube and if you have to pull the hpop cover and make sure the rear cover isn't cracked or leaking before messing with a rear main or bed plate seal.

Quite often if the pan is mistorqued or loose it leaks oil and mimics other leaks. Just something to think about.

progress update:

--drivers side glow plug wires are clean

--dip stick o ring is good

--pass side glow plugs look clean but really hard to tell

-- pass side of block towards front of trans has some oil residue but i can't quite get good look at it, its not close to trans though and my engine oil pan is mostly dry

next questions:

so what should i look for behind the little plastic or rubber inspection cover on trans? and do i just use a flat head screw driver?

for turbo oil feed or drain tubes just a mechanics mirror or can i look if i lay on engine bay?

thx im not a diesel tech so this is kinda new really digging in the engine bay haha

Let me know what you find, I have the same drip. I can wipe it and it's good for a few days before it drips again.
