Two Questions: Turbo and Oil Filter

Hey Guys,

I have a 2001 2500 4x4 and am having two issues with it...

My oil filter keeps coming loose and spewing oil everywhere. I tighten it and it still works loose. Any ideas?

When I'm accelerating, my turbo makes a squealing noise that kind of sounds like a slipping belt. I pulled the intake hose off and the turbine doesn't seem to be loose. Any ideas?

Thanks a bunch guys!

Not good...

Here is how to check the turbo over...

As for the oil filter... When you tighten it... It should be tighten 3/4 of a turn from the time its make contact with the base. You might also check the thread fitting in the base and make sure it tight too.

But since you lost oil pressure a few times I'm afraid to say that it a good chance you might be replacing the turbo...
