Oil from intercooler tube?

After my truck was in the shop for the radiator leak the intercooler tube had popped off on me. Since then it seems to leak a little bit of oil from between the rubber tube and the metal tube. Should there be oil in there?

I don't know too much about the turbo/intercooler setup on these things.

Thanks!

yup thats normal. we have a closed crank case vent system (which sucks by the way) that recycles all of the ccv vapors through our turbo-intercooler system. Do a ccv mod and your engine and boots will always be clean and look good

OK cool. Is it possible to do that mod on the 6.4 at this point?

For starters I will take off the boot and clean it all up nicely and put it back. Need to also take it off and inspect it to see if they damaged it when they put it back.

I dont know? I havent heard of anything about it yet. I just saw your post on th home page and answered it without looking, didnt know it was for a 6.4. I always do that. I will do some digging around and see if I can come up with anything. Im assuming it can be done the same as the other trucks?

I don't even know anything about it yet I'll read up on it for the other trucks so at least I know.

My first step is just fixing the problem but I wanted to make sure what I was seeing wasn't a sign of a much bigger problem first.


Thanks for the quick response. I love this forum!

I went ahead and ordered the boots from Dieselsite. Might also go ahead and fab a bracket like they have avail for the 6.0.

CCV Reroute mod

I did mod with about 1000 mile on the truck...It is really simple compared to the 6.0L. I will post some pics this weekend.
