She's leakin oil pretty bad. Help!

So today about to leave work, while lettin my truck warm up I noticed oil poori ng out from under my truck. Got under it to look and it's comin from around the bell housing up top. Popped the hood looked up top and there is a little bit in the engine valley, but not alot so I started lookin toward the back by the turbo and is it possible that a seal on the pedestal went out or what?? What ever it is it sux my truck is my daily and not to mention my baby.. My heart is breaking for her, somebody please give me a good place to start before I start tearing her apart!?

sounds like the turbo pedestal o-rings. Its a diy job, someone had a nice write up with pics check it out. Just try to use the Ford rings cause the commercial stuff might not cut it and youll be back in there sooner than later.

Roger that. Yeah it don't seem to fun lookin pullin the turbo. The only bad thing when it comes to a lifted truck I'll be sitting on the engine or standin on the tire the whole tome doin this... Since I'm back there is if worth goin to the pedestal with the ebpv delete on it?? And or changing any seals on the turbo or up pipes?

Umm.. $98 for a non ebpv ped. I can't remember where.

Be careful takin that turbo out, you DONT want to break those up pipe gaskets loose.

runs just fine with the gutted pedestal and back pressure housing. Mine takes approximately an extra 5 minutes to reach operating temp at high idle.

The BPV kept sticking on me, til I got sick of it, and out it came. 1/2 coarse tap through the actuator rod hole, 1 bolt, 1 washer, 1 nut and some silicone. no more problem. I don't see any realised percentage in buying a solid pedestal, other than the million to one chance that the BACK o-ring might someday leak.

Other than that, like I say, runs as good as it ever did.

sorry to hi jack the thread but my 97 is leaking pretty bad as well its leaking down the back of the motor onto the scatter shield and dipping around the bolt holes. A shop told me it was the rear main but after reading all these posts that seems very uncommon. Plus the diesel shops I took it to dont seem to have very much knowledge of the 7.3. The valley is dry as a bone and the trans was just rebuilt 15k ago and the shop didnt say it needed a rear main so any suggestions? sorry for the high jack! just hate re-posts for the same problems THANKS GUYS! btw it has 257k on her
