Leaky Turbo???

I noticed a small amount of oil leaking near the bottom of the turbo. It is a tiny amount but it drips onto the top of the motor and down the exhaust manifold and makes tiny drops eventually on the ground. I was just wondering where likely spots oil is leaking from?

Is it leaking into the valley of the motor?

yes a little bit and it is also splattering onto the uppipe where the exhaust goes into the turbo. i rubbed my fingers on the bottom of the turbo where that little arm thing is, i forget what its called right now lol but it seems to be coming from right there.

Yeah that is prone to leaks. Its the exhaust back pressure valve actuating arm. There is a piston that is operated by engine oil to move the arm. Also could be the pedestal orings. Look at the pic there is 2 oil galleries running up through the middle. 2 orings to mate to the turbo on top and 2 on the bottom that mate to the engine these can leak also. You can see the arm as this was mine and you can see mine was leaky also. There is a kit to fix, but I just replaced mine with a non ebpv pedestal.

You could give these guys a call. Cheaper then your local ford dealer probobly. Yeah your going to have to remove the turbo and pedestal. If your going to do that get the orings and replace them also. It's not too difficult to remove just time consuming. Your going to have to lay on the engine to reach everything. I use a sleeping bag worked out nice.
