Oil Leak Already .... Darn It !!

Well I noticed I have a pretty good oil leak. It's coming from the tranny inspection cover.

The kind of leak that continued slowly dripping for quite a few hours AFTER the engine was off and parked.

It looks like main seal, but as we all know gravity makes overhead leaks look like main seal.

I haven't stepped up into the engine compartment to look in the valley or turbo, but is there any place overhead that is prone to an oil leak ??

Id check the valley before making any assumptions.

Might be your fuel bowl leaking. The fuel leaks into the valley and collects all the gunk and makes it look like oil when really all it's just fuel. Same thing happened to me.

I had the same kind of leak, turned out to be the turbo pedestal o-rings and the ebpv valve. Id check those out.

Cool guys, thanks !

I know it's not fuel, as I was under the truck wiping it down, and it did not smell like it.


As soon as my shop clears up, I will throw the truck up on my lift and check it out further.


For now, I will my forklift and a creeper to check out the top side ...

it wont smell like oil when it comes out the bottom. it basically cleans all the oil and gunk off the top of the block and once it gets down to the inspection cover there is more oil than fuel.

my vote is either fuel valve leak, turbo pedestal o rings, or a plug on the hpop leaking, or ebpv actuator leaking

i said it backwards haha. i meant to say it wont smell like fuel

its easy to see if the drain vavle is leaking, start the truck and look at the fuel valve, or put a towel/finger right under the valve and see if you get fuel.

mine was dripping a lot so it was easy to tell.

and dont forget to check your oil just in case it is oil leaking

Had the same issue a few weeks ago. Ended up having to replace the O-rings on the fuel valve. Good Luck!
