Leaking oil,rough idle and shift,low boost.

I have a 2004 6.0 with just over 113k. I recently noticed an oil leak that seems to be coming from the top rear of the motor and dripping down to the oil pan. I did research and found that it is probably an hpop gasket. Well lately I have noticed a difference when it idles,acceleration is slow and there is no power,my turbo has some severe lag until I hit 2000 rpms or more. During acceleration I feel a bad jerk when the trans shifts. I am guessing this is because the engine isn't running right. It is going in the shop next week but I am just wondering if this could all be from a leak?

i really dong think it is a hpop gasket. it could very well be a rear main seal, though they are not know to fail every so often there will be one that does. or it could be o-ring on the turbo that could have dry rotted or just gone bad as well. that is a more common one to have happen.

Those were the other two I was told it could be. It is going in the shop next week,I think it is covered under my warranty. After taking a closer look today I believe it may be the turbo. There is alot of oil residue on the bottom side of the turbine housing. How much do you think it would be to have that replaced if it is not covred under warranty? I know the ford dealership is really proud of their brand.

well if it really is the o-ring on the turbo you could do that your self if you were so inclined to do so for pretty cheap...the o-ring and bolt to go into it will run probably 25-40 bucks, if you were doing it yourself...knowing ford, labor+Parts=$$...so i cant really give you a real price on everything
