Turbo Failure

The truck is at the dealer, and in thinking that the turbo is causing the problems, leaking oil and smoking when theres no boost.

Now what is the most common reason for failure? Theres no tuner. Its basically stock.

Could be stuck vanes. If it gets stuck in the hih flow position, when you go to take off from low RPM, it will just smoke and smoke....

What oil is leaking and from where?

off the top and base of the turbo, therers oil on the tranny lines and the whole right side of the bottom of the engine. shes been at the dealer for 10 days now. and the smoke was from the egr valve, it was either fully open or closed, no in between.
