What is this? Why is it leaking? How do I stop it?

So, somethings leaking and its annoying me.

On the passenger side of the truck running into the turbo. Runs under the radiator overflow.

You can see the extra oil which is the source of the leak (I think). There's more oil underneath but I do not see another source.

I'm not the most mechanical minded person in the world - so I appreciate all the help!!

Sorry for the closeup crappy pics.

how many miles on your rig. That looks like normal from your ccv. What happens is over time oil accumulates from how ford designed the ccv on these trucks. Are all the boots oiled up on the truck? Take the intercooler pipes loose and off the truck clean the up really good and put her back together. You can search ccv mod on the site and put a catch can or run rauls ccv mod if you want to shell out a some dough. Either way it is normal but a pain when you are leaking oil everywhere and or blowing boots off.

If I'm going to do the mod, I figure I'll replace the boots at the same time. Which boots do you guys recommend?

From doing some research, it seems as if the stock ones are silicone and this is not compatible with the closed system. I know that diesel site has some that seem better and stealth has some but they are silicone.

Your experience is much appreciated.

If your going to do the ccv mod you can run almost any boot. No need to spend alot of coin on a boot thats oil resistant even though no more oil will be in the intake. Also consider cleaning the intercooler as oil may be pooled up in there. I have been using stuff from siliconeintakes.com for a while now with zero issues. Also look into building your own ccv catch can. When you see what it consists of compared to the price of buying one it will upset you.
