Well I seem to be having a heck of a time keeping my truck out of the repair-shop and on the road, since Christmas.

Now I have developed a very bad oil leak that seems to be coming down or from around the base of the turbo pedestal (does that make sense?). And makes a big puddle on the ground when the engine is running and after shutting if off. Does appear to stop leaking after its been shut off for a while. Oil is very black (only about 400 miles since it was changed) and may be thin (could it have fuel in it?) Any ideas? :shrug: Truck has 97K on it.

Thanks for any help - Ol Red

Yep, a bad O ring under the turbo will drain an engine of it's oil PDQ....
