oil leak diag

i read thur the steps in the help section. but i'm trying to pin point where my leak maybe coming from . at first i thought it was coming from the rear main aftermoving the inspection cover it was dry inside the bell housing and the seal . but however the leaking from the top down. i got a long mirror and flash light and looked all over the turbo and back of engine . i can't really pin point it . i saw some small oil on the EBPV and on the linkage rod too. maybe while it running its coming out thur there but that doesn't look like it . i tried to find some oil feed lines for the turbo i couldn't find anything . i couldn't really find the hole for the valley either . i want to pin point this so i know what i need to great to fix this .the oil is clean at the bottom of outside of the inspection cover . i'm kinda thinking prob the turbo is leaking but i don't want to wrong . ok guys give me some info .

It might be the o rings on the turbo pedistal. I'm getting ready to replace mine the 2nd time at 120,000. They are pretty cheap for the kit like 20 bucks or so.

Could be the pedestal orings uppers or lowers. Also could be coming from the actuating arm on the pedestal you talked about. Another spot that leaks ts the hpop orings.

thanks guys . i really want to pin point this vs. poking and hoping. i check the front of the HPOP and didn't find any leaks. i really couldn't see where the pedestal but it look fairly newest wet on the EBPV however i dunno if that be take much of and leak on that seal . its hard to pin poin b/c it looks like this leak has been for some time and the valley is coved with some build up .

mine was leaking on the driver's side of the hpop. there was a plug that was loose. Mine was facing downward, but someone else here had the same problem, but there's was pointing up at about a 45 deg, I think it's called the ferry plug. You should also check the hose clamps on the intake tubes. I had to wash mine down before I could find it. good luck
