Oil in the I/C tubes is normal and enough on the outside to collect dust is normal as well.

how many miles on it. ... sounds like the turbo is tired. seals might be going bad in it, over time it may fill the intercooler, then you will have to remove and clean.... time consuming

Its probably your hpop seals leaking. They are very common on the 7.3's. The oil residue on the cac tubes is also normal. There is a mod where you can route the crank case ventilation out the back of the truck to prevent the dirty cac tubes. The hpop seals aren't a big deal to get fixed, i personally haven't done them, but i don't think i a dealer would charge much to do it for ya.

its either your turbo ped orings (easily fixable) or the EBPV actuator leaking (also easy)....
I highly doubt its the HPOP seals but I very well could be...

You guys aren't talking about the same thing.

blk99 is talking about the gasket between the HPOP Res and the front cover and the HPOP gasket the pump and the front cover. (Do leak from time to time, but is far more rare then HPOP O rings or fittings failing).

Dan your dealer was talking about the O rings that go into the fittings on the pump and sometimes the stainless steel lines break or come apart. Plus the swivel fittings on the superduties (unlike the ones on the OBS) are known to fail as well.


As for the OP - refer to my link in my inital post and let us know how diagnosis goes.
