Leaking oil

Hey guys. I have a 02 Powerstroke 7.3

I bought it about 3 months ago and put 2800 miles on it so far. I noticed that it recently started leaking a tiny bit of oil. I know for a fact it never leaked when I bought it.

My question is, is there a common place for these to leak? It kind of looks like the rear main maybe?

Any help is great appreciated.

Here's an interesting video that should help, BUT I have to warn you about this guy,,,, he makes Great Videos, that Does NOT make him infallible though. He's got some really GOOFY theories (not about this though) So, don't take him as your Guru, as many do Confirm his advice on anything else he says

Common places would be HPOP lines/fittings, EBPV rod, and turbo pedestal. It has a very very very very slim (did I mention very?) chance of being the rear main or oil pan seal.

That, and they're diesels... they like to leak oil.

I agree. first thing is to clean engine completely... then identify where leak is.. keep in mind on rear of block is a "drain" where it can leak down back side of motor causing it to look like rear main..

i would clean good and check daily for leak.. and go from there

Yup.... my turbo pedestal and the EBV rod both were leaking, it started as a slow drip but got progressivly worse. This is a pic of what the Pedestal looked like when I removed it, and the valley of the engine where the drain is:

I've got this same problem, and I currently have my transmission out doing a 6 speed swap so I'm going to try and fix all these leaks. Is there a "bulletproof" setup for fixing leaks or potential problems that I need to look at while I have all this apart? How about an aftermarket company that sells all the gaskets and orings together, or just get them from ford?

thanks.

Dieselorings sells a master kit for pretty much all the common leak points. No bullet proofing needed. Just replace orings. I mean, I guess you can get the non EBPV turbo pedestal but that's about it.

I guess getting the deleted EBPV pedestal, or gutting mine, would have the one plus side of eliminating that leak point, but what is the downside? How will not having a EBPV operating properly effect the engine? Thanks for the heads up on the master kit.... I'll be looking that up.

Most delete it or plug it and report no extended warm up times.
