2004 F350 6.0L Help! Pop and oil leak.

I have a 2004 F350 6.0L I was driving the other day and heard a load pop or backfire lost all power the engine shut down. I pulled over had oil trail behind my truck for a couple of blocks lots of oil it looks like its leaking on the driver side and on top side of motor. I got it towed was checking it out the motor lost all the oil the air cleaner has a mouse nest in it looks like the turbo sucked the nest in it and there is oil in the turbo and it moves freely. Please help!

Best bet is to clean the nest, degrease the top of the engine, fill it up and see where you are at. You need a clean engine to start looking for a leak. The pop could have been many things. Start simple and go from there.

Start with cleaning it as advised, and don't neglect the oil strewn all over the rest of the truck.

My guess is your turbo is trashed and it lost a seal when it tried to eat the nest, but the only way to know is to fill it with oil and run it......if it will run.

Prior to running it, inspect your turbo for major damage. Spin the shaft and see what you get. If the turbo is wasted it will not run and last thing you want is more junk that made it through prior to damage ending up in your intake.

Disconnect your downpipe and see if there's any oil in there or in the turbine housing. If so, i'm going with turbo seal as well. If you don't see any oil inside the turbine housing or downpipe and your truck is an early '04, check your ICP sensor on the HPOP by the IPR, as those are prone to failure for the early models.
