The valley did have a small section that looked wet but overall it looked good. The only thing I haven't looked at is the turbo pedestal. Is it what the turbo is mounted to? Is it easy to look at? I appreciate everyones input so far. Hopefully I will find the leak and get it fixed pretty soon. Thanks for all the input.
If you pull the intercooler pipe off of the pass. side, it will be easier for you to see the turbo pedestal and the rear of the valley.
If you do this and then start the truck to see where it is leaking, Don't let anything come near the Y pipe---LOTS of suction!!

good luck

Me Tooo

I have the same kinda problem. My high pressure hose is leaking next to the hpop. They call these quick release fittings, does it work just like a quick release air hose fitting? Do I replace the hose, fitting, or nut to solve the problem? Thanks in advance for the help.....

Yes, it is just like an air hose, with the line being the female end-and the the fitting that is screwed into the HPOP is the male end. Long handled needle nosed pliers will do the trick, don't bother with the $60 tool.

It depends on where exactly it is leaking from what you need to replace.

If it is leaking between the HPOP housing and the male fitting then replace the o-rings(3 all together- 2 quick release fittings and one nut on the backside)with Ford kit#9G804.($27)

If it is leaking out of the thin rubber protection sleeve at the connection, then the leak is inside the male fitting that is screwed into the HPOP housing(Ford part#9C402). There is a non servicable o-ring in it, and the whole fitting needs to be replaced.(maybe $30?)
I'll try to get a few pics up if I can
Good Luck

Has anyone mentioned the oil ferry plug? that's where mine was. it's on the driver's side of the hpop, down pretty low, either pointing up or down at about 45deg. I think it's a 5/8" plug

Not if there is oil in the valley.
Although there is a TSB on rusted oil pans I beleive.

i currently have this problem lots of oil draining maybe 1 drip every 5-8 seconds i tightened the hose fittings on the driver side of the HPOP and it stopped the leak pretty good except i could not get the 3/4 or 5/8 (i could not remember what size) wrench in there very good. can i remove these fittings or is it like an AC where i will lose all my pressure?

You should be fine. I did mine with the truck off, and I didn't have any problems at all.
Disconnect them, and inspect/replace the o- rings hopefully you'll be GTG, and dry!

Good Luck!
