degreased the area below the turbo and rinsed it out with light water pressure. was able to tighten up screws on cac tubes (?) going down to heads about half turn with screwdriver. now that the area is clean i will check it out in a couple of days.

back of the engine is a telltale sign of a leak in the turbo seal...
just for argument's sake, how many miles do you have?

small oil leak around turbo
Getting ready to track down a small oil leak. It appears to be coming from the turbo area (case appears dry). it is leaking down the backside of the engine. i get about 4 drips worth after shutting engine down and truck sitting for several hours. truck has about 111k on it.
curious to see if others have had a problem or maybe info on what it could be.
