checking out a 7.3 but i has oil in the exhaust...

So i found alright truck in roseville, ca. Just test drove it and everything seemed ok for a 2001 with 216k on it.

Issue is oil is dripping from the exhaust joints and really built up on the tailpipe tip.

Is this a deal breaker? Having lunch and might go back depending on input. :-/

Seller says the oil is due to newly replaced objectors seals.

... Autocorrect fail. Objectors = injectors

New to diesels myself, but it sounds like a high price for one with potential issues...

It is true with what he is saying, you will get oil out of the exhaust from replacing injectors and/or o rings. Even if you take the plug out of the end of the head to drain the oil gallery, you still will have some get into the cylinder. The question is how recent where they replaced? When i replace injectors ill drive them a couple days and clean up the excess oil with brake clean off the joints where it comes out.

Go under the truck up by the manifolds. Where they connect to the up pipes. Wipe some off the "oil" up and make sure it's oil.
Thought I had oil in my exhaust as well. But really it was diesel that looked like oil because of all the soot.
I had three injectors that were stuck open on the drivers side. It was a wet exhaust!

Ended up passing on it. Talked to the mechanic who changed the injector cups, seemed pretty legit but still didn't really quell my concerns... I'm bummed but I'm still on the hunt!

Thanks for the input, guys!
