Oil cooler change and now big problems 6.0

So I changed my oil cooler and put on an egr delete kit. The truck started fine after cranking the engine for a little bit and ran good for about 3 minutes it was cold so it kicked into high idle. I was about ready to drive it when it died. It was puking oil out of the back of the engine. The turbo return is out of place would this puke a gallon of oil in just a few seconds? Would that in turn starve to HPOP? Please help fast if I need parts I need to get them today. Thanks

I did the same thing. Pull the turbo and make sure everything stays in place when you reinstall. Top off the oil and check for leaks. Should not be a big deal.

Thanks man, I guess that the turbo oil return had popped out when I put the turbo in. I didn't know that it would force a gallon and a half out brand new T6 oil on to the floor. That's about a 40 dollar oil spill. So how do you get a broke off dip stick out of the tube is there any trick to this? It was a long day....

I know that feeling! Lol. Small pair of needle nose pliers on the dipstick. I have a super skinny set I bought from Snap-on, but you might find some at a hobby store.

Here is a bad story with a good ending. I tried to get the dipstick out with needle nose and a pick and all I did was push it way farther into the tube. I figured I was up Poop creek so as a last ditch effort I put a couple drops of super glue on the head of a small nail and let it rest on the top of the dipstick for several hours and the dipstick pulled right out with the nail. Then to top it off the stealership only wants 10 bucks for a new dipstick. It is true, good things happen to dumb people..
