well heres what happened i was on the free way got off and was waiting at the light, while im sitting there i see some little clouds of white smoke coming from what i belive was the car in front of me but turns out it was my truck, so i drive about 2 miles more to my destination and decide to get out and pop the hood when i do i see the entire engine compartment cover in oil except for the passengers side as i look underneath my truck i notice ive lost about 2-3 quarts of oil and decide it best to shut the truck off, no the bad part as i walk back down the street i was on i noticed a huge oil trail comeing from where i was driving including the u tunr i made a to get to the house, now for the inside oil dripped down the down pipe onto the drive shaft and coted my etire undercarrage but back to the engine, i notice most of the oil seems to be pooled over the drivers side valve cover and the vicinity above it can any tell me if im lucky enough to have just blown a gasket or if i blew my hpop need help asap

yup theres oil in the valley all over the firewall, all over the turbo, all over the tranny all over the drive shaft, all over the exhaust, but i didnt see any oil coming from the hpop lines those seem fairly clean actually light soaking not nearly as much as the rear of the engine

Anything is possible. But that much oil? Sprayed everywhere... smart money is hpop or hpop line (oring).
i agree with this. sounds like hpop oring to me too

i hear you. like dirk said, fill it up with oil, and with that much oil leaking out you should be able to tell exactly where its coming from(hopefully just the hpop oring)

oring is blown at the rear of the fitting.Hole in rear of HPOP line.It is 100% HPOP oring/fitting/line.Especially if you left a noticeable trail.I have driven over 30 miles with no turbo pedastal oring and there wasn't near as much oil as when I blew the rear oring on the Hpop line.You could see the trail on the highway as we beat feet back to the nearest store for oil.1 gallon in 6 miles.

I had a high pres oil line blow. it got oil in the alternator and soaked the hood insulation. Ford repaired the oil line under warranty. A few days later i saw smoke coming from under the hood, when I opened the hood it flamed up. Fire coming from inside the alt. Ford refused to warranty it, and later the hood insulation fell apart, and i had to replace that also out of my pocket. So, make sure that you check the alt for oil saturation and maybe remove the hood insulation and use degreaser and wash it.

The HPOP lines are a quick disconnect style, but i'm not sure if they are the same ones on the 6.0's or not. :shrug:

BTW...HPOP under the turbo?
