oil dripping

When I got home from work today I noticed some shine on the rear axel. Looked further and saw oil running from the TC pan. Definately oil and not trans fluid. Opened hood and oil spatter on the boost tubes and oil in the valley of the engine. Truck ran OK all the way home, but seemed to be down on power a little. Where do I look first for the problem? Thanks.

I will be following this as well. I have a similar problem. General consensus for this type of leak is HPOP or turbo pedistal o-rings. Not sure how to isolate the two though. (That is the reason I will be hanging around....lol)

Get a flashlight and a mirror, start the truck and look in the valley for the source of the leak.

It was the plug in the rear of the HPOP. I checked the HPOP oil lines to the heads, they were clean. When I went to remove the plug, it was only hand tight and the oring was in peices. I purchased a new oring from NAPA and used lock-tite on the threads. Seems to have cured the problem. I am still working on cleaning all of the oil out of the engine valley.

you can get an oring kit from ford for about $30 and it replaces the oil line o rings (prone to leak) and the oring on the back of the hpop. DO NOT USE REGULAR ORINGS! they need to be vytran or they will blow out!. That is where I would start (happened to me before).

I have a similar leak, only mine was on the plug thats closest to the IPR, facing down towards the head. i pulled it out and the o-ring was all mangled. threw a new one on and we'll see today if ti leaks.

I've talked to a couple people running standard o-rings and they haven't had trouble with them.

i need help too....

I have the same issue but can not find the leak... I have been searching for about two months... does anyone have any tips on getting a good look at the back side of the turbo??? i have already replaced the hpop o-rings and the gasket between the hpop and the reservoir.

Take a mirror and a BRIGHT flashlight. Worked for me. Looks like mine is the EBPV actuator rod. Either that or the pedestal is a likely culprit.
