Is this a serious Oil Leak around turbo!
My truck is a 2007 F350 King Ranch 6.0 PS. with 243k on it.
A little while ago I started noticing an exhaust type of odor in the the cab and shortly after i noticed some faint smoke coming from just below the turbo. I also notice some oil dripping from the boot connecting the tube from the intercooler to the turbo, I notice the strap closest to the turbo was loose so I tightened it and it has stopped leaking, but I would like to know if this is too much oil in that area and is it still safe to drive my truck with out seriously damaging the turbo or something else.
Some other post in the this forum where saying that it's normal as long as there is not to much oil, so I uploaded some pics to see if anyone could help out with some advice or opinions.
The turbo has good boost, over 20psi and there are no codes. I do alot of stop n' go and highway driving.
Thanks in advance.
