massive oil loss

driving my 2000 ford excursion 7.3 turbo. it stalled
when flatbed came noticed large amt of oil had leaked.
enough not to register on dipstick.
any thoughts? do this motor stall before an internal damage?

Sounds like a high pressure oil line burst. Yeah, they will shut from loss of oil to the hpop. Don't know the long term effects, though.

I had an issue this summer with a massive oil leak. On the back side of the hpop facing the cab there is a plug. Mine had come loose and the O-Ring was bad. An easy fix, but I did loose a ton of oil. Not sure if this is your issue. I'd start by filling up with oil, starting the engine and then see where it's pouring out from. Good luck!

the injectors are fired by oil so yes it will kill it itself before it completely runs out.

i second the rear plug on my hpop started leaking as well. dieselroings has the oring for that.

if its not the rear plug i would check the turbo pedestal orings or the hpop system.

if a hpop oil line blew the hole underside of the hood and everything would be covered in oil.
if you have oil in the valley id say its either hpop or turbo pedestal.

the ebpv actuater can also leak, but it usually does not leak large amounts of oil...

thank you for all your suggestions. what it turned out to be, a hot wire made contact with the oil line and burnt a hole into it. Something else to watch. thanks again for all the input

The fitting where the dipstick goes in the pan will dump oil very fast if the oring goes as will mine dumped a gallon about every 100 miles it shut itself of the first time before I knew what was going on mine would only leak when it had pressure on it cost me 200 dollars in oil to get it home.
