Question 1996 7.3 Turbo Question

I have a stock 7.3L in 1996 F 350. The problem is I seem to have to much crankcase pressure. My mechanic said there probably a seal going bad in the turbo and is leaking pressure into the crankcase. Truck has 160K on the clock and runs great, burns little oil. But seems to blow back out of the dip stick and filler tube. Should I replace turbo? Don't want to waste 1300.00 bucks.

i would consider getting a new mechanic, since this is virtually impossible the only thing a turbo can do is suck pressure out of the crankcase. what kind of air filter are you using? you could have dusted your engine and have worn out piston rings

No, thats blow-by. It's normal for the most part. I dont think there's a truck out there that has zero blow-by
