With the oil smell, I would say that your turbo shaft is leaking into the exhaust housing. Catch it before the compressor wheel gets into the housing and takes the whole thing out. I think you can get rebuild kits on eBay for around $90.

hey do you let your truck idle with no load for long periods of time...it could be wet stacking. I just had a truck come in the shop with the same problem and it was wet stacking

it will leave about a foot long trail on the ground in about 5 min of idling. runs down the down pipe.I think its to thin to be oil but it smells like oil. I first thought it was probably a seal in the turbo but now I think it may be injectors

Pull the intake tube off the turbo and check for oil in the compressor, Check the base of the turbo to make sure the O rings are not leaking.

Will the pedistal o-rings make it leak that bad to run down the down pipe

only speaking from experiance, the back bolt on my turbo was hand tight which caused the turbo to eventually become oil starved causing the seals on the shaft to fail, eventually the turbo seized.

I just yanked the turbo about 10 minutes ago and it's not wet anywhere inside the turbo. But the exhaust end of the turbine where the backpressure valve section bolts on tit is wet right down that crack. Is it even possible to leak oil there? and by the way i broke of the backpressure solenoid wires what should i do with that now. build date on the enine is jun 98 if that matters.
