Turbo sitting full of oil?

Pulling an engine in a 03 6.0 that i bought to flip and when i pulled the passenger side intercooler tube off and looked into the turbo it is sitting full of oil. Just wondering what would cause this and if i should suspect the turbo as bad as well as the ending since the replacement engine i have is without the turbo. Thanks

Was there just a light coating of oil? If so it could just be from the CCV.

No its standing oil as in a lot. Turbo isnt off yet but i bet by looking if its poured off there would be a couple cups worth at least. I bought the truck as having a bad engine, 2 cylinders were supposed to be dead on it. I tried to start it but it wouldnt even crank over so i wasnt concerned with doing anything to it since my plans were to replace the engine anyhow. But i was planning to use the turbo off of the current engine on the replacement.

Nope it wont turn over. Not sure what the deal is with it. Previous owner parked it where i picked it up about 4 months prior to my buying it and he never restarted it. It has 118k on it. He said that Ford had told him that 2 cylinders were way low on compression and it was smoking really bad so he just parked it and decided to sell it. So somehow from the time he parked it till now the turbo filled with oil somehow. I will know more tomorrow when the turbo is off. I am wondering if the crankcase might be overfilled or something, will check that as well.

Just a little update, we drained 14 gallons out of the oil pan today. Not sure how that much diesel got in there but that was evidently what caused the engine to go bad in the first place. Any ideas why there would be so much in the pan? THanks

14 gallons? Gallons? Not quarts but gallons?

Diesel fuel?

Wow.

There is no telling. It could be a multitude of things but I have no explanation other than someone being very stupid.

Yea 14 gallons is really hard to get in there. Sounds like vandalism.

Yep gallons! Thats why i couldnt get the engine to turn over it was hydrolocked. We let it drain overnight to see if we could get it out of the cylinders so we can turn it over to get the converter bolts out but havnet given it a try yet. If not will have to remove the glow plugs and do it that way. Not sure how in the hell it would get so much fuel in the engine, would really like to know though.
