oil leak....main seal?
So I went to a dealer for a free check on an oil leak. Everything was normal, I was towing 12k gross, and that night there was prob. about 6 spots dripping on the ground, 3-5" dia. marks from oil. I thought it had something to do w/ the turbo, ped, or EBPV stuff. There is no oil in the valley. Oil is all the way back to the tran. pan, exh. pipe, and the cross member. Take it to the dealer and they tell me, my main seal is leaking, along w/ my oil pan, oil cooler, and crankcase....something basically saying 2800 for a repair. I even asked about the turbo and the tech said it was fine, dry. I took a mirror to look behind the turbo and I see oil dripping off the ebpv rod, and fresher/wetter oil all around the back of the turbo.
How much oil can leak from the EBPV?
Is there any way I can check to see if the main is leaking?
Over all the leak is about....1/2 gal 3-400 miles
I thought something was wrong w/ the turbo, so I switched my chip into a higher setting and under heavy load when the boost hits 9-10 psi, the turbo makes a very subtle high pitch whining type noise. Easiest way to describe is like an elec. motor at a very high pitch, high speed.
