Re: How much oil leaks out of HPOP and Turbo Pedestal O-rings?
I am chasing the same problem, oil in the valley. I thought it was the IPR,, cleaned everything out of valley,, (Rags and smaller hands, Some of you guys couldnt get your hand into the valley behind the fuel housing I am sure)
I had oil running down the length of the IPR and changed it out,, now a week later, more oil. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/phoney.gif[/img] So, I am wiping it all out again, going to check those plugs Kevin mentioned.
I would wipe everything out first, if it IS the turbo pedistal, you will see the oil there first obviously. If it comes from the front to the rear of the motor in the valley,,then it is HPOP area related of course.
The turbo pedistal is not hard to remove really, Just a bit difficult to reach if your bigger. You have to basicly lay across the motor and reach under the cowl. First remove all the turbo pipes,,,The Down pipe and UP pipe collector will be the hardest to do. If it hangs up after loosening the clamp, then take a long drift punch and LIGHTLY tap with a hammer thru the turbo,,(Between the housings you can see the collector) from the right front corner of engine. The EBV has a small clip,, (CAREFULL not to loose it)
After everything is off the turbo, there are two bolts between the housings, these hold the turbo to the pedistal, then the 4 bolts that hold the pedistal are acessable. The "O" rings are below and ABOVE the pedistal, between the engine and pedistal, and pedistal and turbo.
