Exclamation Help! Oil In Boots

Hey guys,

I just did the ccv mod last weekend along with some other things (foil delete, zoodad, etc.) and had the spider off. I just had to replace a fuel line yesterday and noticed more oil in the boots. There is as just much oil if not more than when i cleaned them out last weekend.

My question is this from just the oil working it self out of the system or from a leak in the turbo seals. It is a stock turbo from what i understand. The truck has about 165k miles on it now.

Please help me out. Ask if you need to know any more info about the truck. I am trying to figure out if it will be okay for a 4 hr road trip to KY from IN this weekend.

Thanks guys.

To find out if it's from the turbo, look at the intake side wheel of your turbo.

So your saying take off the intake and look at the wheel. Then what should it have oil on it or what. What will i see if it is or isnt the turbo.

Well I was thinking it was a 6.0l and that's how I checked for mine. But should be similar. When mine was leaking there was oil all over the wheel but not on the housing. Oil in the housing would be from the CCV, but oil on and after the wheel would point to it leaking..
Our 7.3l just rolled 130,000 today with the same turbo.

But after thinking about it, you'd know if the seals are leaking.. It might be left over from the mod.
Just have to check.

Okay thanks. Are there other ways to tell if the seals are leaking?

That long? Goodness.. Jonathon P. did it to his 7.3l and cleaned it. Checked after driving 20miles and none there.



But if you did the CCV mod and had oil near the red arrow and none by the orange. Turbo has a bad seal.. Or I was taught very, very wrong.. lol
