Oil leak

Hey guys I have an 2002 and the truck has an oil leak it seems to be coming around the turbo and the oil is on the underneath side of the two tubes that run on top of the motor that Y's together (for a lack of better words) but it will leak all the way down to the oil pan. I'll lose about a quart in 4000 miles any suggestion. And is it worth fixing or just keep putting oil in

It's not hard, just do the research to learn how. While your at it go ahead and rebuild the EBPV. It could be leaking also, and if you don't do it now you will be pulling the turbo again to do it. You can find all the parts you need at dieselorings.com. Instructions come with the parts I think. I did mine myself for the first time, just do the research. Good luck!

yeah actually i just did that job today. its fairly easy and doesnt require special tools. just take off the plumbing for the turbo, all the way out, so it stays out of your way. then take off the Y pipes. (the one with the plugs on it right in front of the turbo area. then there are two v-pipe clamps to take off. before you get into that and get really frustrated, spray a bunch of wd40 on and around those clamps. wait a few minutes then tap them with a small hammer, they should come right off. (have fun reinstalling them, unthread that nut as far back as it will go, then push push push til its in.) after the pipes are off, take the two bolts that connect the turbo housing to the pedestals off then the turbo should be free. replace o rings and reverse the steps to reassemble. done and done son.
