oil leak

I put some dye in the oil after a total cleaning to track the source of the leak. There`s oil in the valley (center to rear) and I`ve read all the posts regarding this although I cannot find anything about approx. costs or is this something for me to tackle.I`d kinda think it`s the turbo pedestal, find out soon. Anyway,,is it $$$$$

If you're doing your own labor all you'll be out s a few bucks for the four o-rings. If you are paying labor that figure you'll get charged about six hours to remove and replace the turbo.

Oil leak

I had a similar problem. The valey would fill up with oil. I used a flashlight to look into the valley with the engine running. There is a small hole 1/16th of an inch or so on the back of the high pressure oil pump. I drains oil when the pump goes bad. Like a water pump. You can see this right below the fuel filter.

Any updates on your situation? My dad's '96 Turbo Super Duty has had a small oil leak for a while now as well. Were suspecting it's coming from the turbo, but not quite sure yet...

Thanks!
