Leaking oil in front, blowby on dipstick
Hey everyone and i got a problems with my truck and im having a hard time with it. I recently arrived at school in my truck to find a huge puddle of oil just start leaking out the front. Dragged it home and with the help of my brother he figured it was the oil cooler. We took it off to find a lot of scale, the gaskets and places where the tube connects to both end adapters were rotted/gone. So i bought all the new hardware to put it back together and threw it in there. Cleaned the anti-freeze system, put all new oil and anti-freeze in. Next 2 days when i got to school i have small puddles about 3 inches in diameter dripping over the days time. Also when i got it home and ran it in the driveway i would see white "vapor" or "blowby" coming out of the dipstick, i tried to press it on hoping it would fix it but then realized it probably wasn't supposed to be doing that. It seems to be dripping from about the middle of the front of the engine what appears to be right under the fan belt. Ive talked to some friends and investigated a few things. Lastly i took off the filter for where the air goes from the intake back to where it either goes to the turbo or into the motor. I dont know what the filter or the housing that is screwed to the top of the block/cover is called. It is covered in scale and rusted/rotted up. My guess is thats my problem. If anyone can tell me what the part name is or if you think im wrong in my assumption any and all help is much appreciated. If i can today or tomorrow im gonna try to get a picture of the part up here to help you guys. Ive searched the internet for a while for a schematic or picture with the name of the part but I haven't come up with anything. I really need my truck back soon so i would like to fix it today if i can but will settle for tomorrow if i have to. Thanks again in advance
Edit: My Truck is a 96 Ford F-350 Powerstroke XL 4x4
