CAC Oil Leak
I took my 6.0 to the dealer -3yrs old 20,000 miles Runs great. Oil was leaking down along the block over the starter with a small drip on the fly wheel housing. Oil was in the galley under the turbo.
Not a gusher but wet and noticeable.
Dealer cleaned the oil out of the galley and the block, put in dye, Cleaned the CAC tube at the turbo. Tightened to spec ? Drove it 80 miles.
No leak found with the dye.
Dealer analysis - oil leak from CAC tube at the turbo. Normal.
I DO know all the CAC tubes will be wet with some oil seepage, I do clean them off from time to time and check torqued. None are showing a drip leak. I have read all the current oil leak issues on the forum.
Does this all sound good?
The dealer is one of the best in East TN. I do not think they are doing the run around.
