Doing some maintenance, what else should I look at

New Powerstroke owner and a diesel newb in general.

My 2000 f350 has a small oil leak that is running down the back of the motor. From what I understand it is usually the turbo pedestal or the HPOP so I am going to start with those 2 items. While I am working in that area, is there anything else that would be good to checkout/replace while I am in there?

Thanks

Viking

Oil cooler on a 7.3? Haven't heard of that before. USUALLY it's the HPOP o rings or pedestal/turbo o rings.

If your clearin a space up on your motor for repair. Take a scrub brush and clean er up. A clean motor is a happy motor. Plus it makes it nice not to get dirty every second you touch a piece on your motor
