**OIL LEAK WITH PICTURES

I was crawling around under my truck and saw that there was oil residue around my starter, I havent seen it drip and it doesnt leave a puddle under my truck. ive seen some people saying that the turbo pedestal or the ebpv, i dont know if its either of those.. is there anyway to look down by the pedestal to see if its leaking i tried and i cant really see to much. i though i saw some residue but couldnt tell where it was from.

the first and second pic is of the starter and the oil residue around it.

the thrid pic is i think where its being blow to by the wind.

the fourth is the turbo i couldnt get the camera down by the pedestal

lay up on the motor, with a flashllight. Shine it in the valley, behind the hpop. If its puddled behind it, the hpop is leaking, probably the "non" serviceable plug, which can be serviced. If no puddle, look then with light, toward the back, where turbo and pedestal is. If puddles there, then more than likely, either the o-rings on the pedestal / turbo are bad, or the EBPV rod, that protrudes from pedestal to outlet of exhaust, is leaking..(most common place).

Order up the "cabinet" kit from diesel orings or riffraffdiesel, and replace them all. While its tore down, remove the fuel bowl and rebuild that too.

Good Luck.

I did that, to include the non-servicable plug. Also, my starter resembled yours, and turns out I was missing the o-ring from the oil filler neck on the p/s valve cover.

Step #1: pressure wash everything so you know where the leaks are originating.

Good luck.

after i did the intercooler boots i havent seen a drop of oil on the ground in quite sometime. but all 3 of those leaks i had were seen in the same areas..down the side of the block from the valley and on the inspection plate covering the TC or whatever.

however even after i degreased the whole underside of the motor it still seems to get covered in grime over time..i just think its inevitable with these things but i have no drops of oil anywhere and my level stays the same now and the valley is dry as can be..

**OIL LEAK WITH PICTURES

I saw that I did have oil in the valley and I got the I ring kit to replace for the hpop but when I was up there I was looking to see where the oil was coming from but I couldn't see any oil residue around the common spots where it leaks. Are there any other points. Also where is that non serviceable plug at? If that's on the bottom that might be the problem

Do you have to take the hpop out to get to that?
