Exclamation Front Top Oil Leak Harley

Alright guys...

I'm looking at an 06 CCSB Harley F250 Black with 102,000 firm @ $22,000

Build date 2/06

Oasis report shows:

Customer Comment: Oil Leak coming from the front top of the engine.

Tech Comments: Performance diag, electrical pinpoint tests, fuel pressure test, relative compression test, diag erp senso, reading high, R&R, also found hot side CAC leaking, R&R also, cleared codes, retested, ok at this time.

work done connection a/c duct and sensor asy egr pr vl (part# sc3z9j460B)

What does all this mean?

Labor hours 3.4 and miles on truck at this time was 97k in May 2011


My question is what could the oil leak be? Top/Front also the tech comments does not appearer to address any leaks and also says (reading high ?, R&R, also found hot side CAC leaking and R&R also)

What does all this mean?

I know the 6.0 can and will have some leaks but i just want to make sure i am not buying some truck a guy just trading in (jumping ship)!!
  1. Would you buy?
  2. Whats the truck worth $$$?
  3. What could the top/front oil leak be?
  4. What seems to be wrong with the R&R?



Thanks,

Dave

Is there anything I could do to find out for sure, such as call the dealer the truck was looked at or the dealer that has truck now and have them take a look. Anyway to look up the owner?

What questions would you ask the dealer that has the truck(as far as oil leak goes? He said they have had the truck almost 60 days and if he lets it go for 21995 he will loss $600 on the truck, but they want to move it. Is this bs? Said 20k wont buy it. This is the Internet sales manager.

The pics seems to be clean and they haven't tried to hide anything. he sent tons of pics and full oasis and auto check report. the only thing on any of this is this oil leak thing.

Are there any oil leaks this truck could have from the top front making the truck not worth buying???

The oil leak that the report was referring to is the IC boots for the CAC. Look up "CCV mod" to prevent from leaking again.

Front/top, Can you see the leak area? Or, just reading the report?

As stated above, the CAC boots from the turbo, will seep oil into the valley of the motor. Over time. And that is behind the oil filter. (mainly) And that is on top. Then normally runs off the back.

Is the oil actually dripping off the front?

wonder why the owner would say front top of motor?

Not sure, i am going to call Monday and see if they can track this down for me.

The hot side cac boot is an extremely common oil leak and will literally soak the valley over time. When this happens the boot needs replaced as the oil has already saturated the silicone enough to cause boost pressure to force it out.
