Oil in air filter

I put my 00 7.3 on it's side this weekend out in the woods for about 10 minutes. I was able to flip it back over on its wheels and started right up. I drove it back home (which was about 2 miles). I let it sit overnight and went back out the next day to start it and it would not start.


I opened the hood and checked the oil, and the dipstick was completely dry. I started to look around for oil leaks and found that there was a good amount of oil sitting in the bottom of my cold air intake filter box/housing. I refilled the engine with almost two gallons of oil and cleaned out the air intake up to the turbo as well as the filter.

The motor started right up. It did have a decent amount of smoke at first bit after starting it idles/runs fine. I then checked the oil and noticed that it was overfilled.

The past couple of days it is still not starting properly, it is still hesitant. I pulled the air filter and it still doesn't start the way it normally did.

Wondering what I should start investigating?

turbo shot maybe? if there was more than the normal amount of blow by oil in the intake.. then i'd imagine your turbo is toast.

Turbo is fresh with less than 3,000 miles on it.

What is the typical amount of blow-by oil?

Oil probably came through the crank case vent and out of your filter.

Should I take apart the entire intake and clean it? i cleaned all the way up to the turbo. The truck runs excellent once started.

I'd probably replace the filter. But a little oil in the intake won't hurt anything.
