TURBO????

Ok guys, 1999 F-350. Smokes blue all the time, excessivley so. Motor sounds strong, starts everytime. Has an exhaust leak off the turbo as well as a newly developed oil leak... How hard are these turbo's to install? If it was put on wrong, whats gonna be messed up when i pull it, and how much of a pain am i looking at to get it done right?

These are not hard to install. I have got to the point where I can have the turbo off my truck in 20 minutes. Same for reinstalling it. Most common cause of exhaust leaks at the turbo is not getting the down pipe flange clamped right. If it is smoking blue then the seals inside may be leaking oil. When was it installed. How old is it.

Truck started smoking around 160,000 and was replaced with a 2000 model that had a 90,000 on it. When it was installed it started having issues immediately after and have gotten to where they are now. Turbo was strong on the other truck, could having it not clamped tight have blown a seal inside? will a leak at the downpipe cause a loss in power or just the rattle? Truck has 163,000 on it now.

If the down pipe is not seated well there should be soot on the fire wall. Another very common place for it to not seat right is where the up-pipes clamp to the back of the turbo. There is an alignment dowel and I often find that it is not in its hole. If its not lined up right it will affect your performance. I don't know why I didn't think of that sooner.

Also next chance you get check the compressor wheel for shaft play.

Will it damage the turbo to have it run without being seated properly? Or will it be ok if i pull it and put it together right? Soot is heavy on the firewall too, and i'm leaking oil. its pooling ontop of and dripping under the oil pan? Turbo seal?

Ya your turbo is deff not seated right at the flanges and it sounds like the o rings in the pedistal are screwed up to. It needs fixed for sure, not a good thing. It is easy to do yourself if you take the time.
