Is this bad?

Just pulled my turbo pipe for the blue spring and saw this.

Is that oil a terrible thing?

Don't know if it is bad or not but mine always looks like that and I never really put much thought into it... I hope that makes you feel better

It's because of the PCV system on these trucks....Do a search for CCV mod if you want to learn how to get rid of it.

Yes it is....but just like the egr system is bad and just like the coolant from Ford is bad. That's why there is the ccv mod, egr delete and restore flush to get the sand out. It's an oem design and that picture with oil is a result of it just like clogged oil coolers are a result of ford gold coolant same with egr coolers.

The only negative thing I've heard is that the oil will soak the air pipe couplers and they can slip off under pressure...So if your driving down the road and hear a POP followed by no boost/power that's probably what happened. Oh and it may puddle in the intercooler and reduce it's efficiency. Other than that it doesn't really hurt anything....You can run a diesel off oil.

The clogged oil coolers and busted EGR coolers have no connection to this and you didn't state anything to back up your claim that it's bad.

There has yet to be any factual proof that Ford Gold is bad, only that any coolant in combination with ionized water(i.e. tap water) will aid in clogging things up. Restore is used to get silicates out in preparation for a change to a non-silicate coolant, not casting sand. Maybe the VC-9/Restore Plus helps serve that purpose. You seem to just be Ford bashing, maybe you should get a bowtie or ram

The PCV may be new to diesel's but it's certainly not new to internal combustion engines.

While only a minor fix, it DOES suck to have happen at 1230 at night while pulling a 10+K load up a hill and lose all power. Nevertheless, it is a pretty easy fix and will most likely manifest itself on one of the hot side pipe boots.

Yup that's all I'm doing is bashing Ford lol. What are you talking about Jerg. You're right those clogged and busted coolers have nothing to do with "this", it's called an example. Pick my post apart so you have something to b!tch about I guess if that's your style. Thanks for the reminder that I can't forget to put JMO after all my posts. I don't need to post the details, I can post "yes it is bad" and be done with it without your "maybe you should go get a different truck" comments. That's why there is a mod called "CCV mod", people will consider that oil bad if it has repeatedly been the culprit of cac tube popping off. Don't worry dude my post is Just My Opinion. My apologies for not typing that in OP.

I came off harsher than intended. It's just your post was full of pure negativity a little bit of misinformation. I completely agree that the PCV system sucks.

And as far as stating your opinion is just that, yea I tend to think people should add that in in some way or another. Like in my original post I used "I've heard" and "it may". Otherwise a lot of people will take others word as fact; like silicate goo supposedly clogging oil coolers, pure opinion and yet treated as scientific fact.
