oil leak , how much to fix

hi all , i am no mechanic so i hope someone can tell me how much this is going to cost me . i've got an oil leak at the front of the engine by the hpop i believe it's called ( the square looking box by the fuel filter) and also by the turbo ( the thing at the back ) . it's got oil directly under these spots in the valley . i've read that the most likely causes are the turbo pedestal and hpop o-rings ? now how much am i going to pay the dealer to fix this ? i'd rather pass out now than in front of a group of people , lol! thanks .

Re: oil leak , how much to fix

I realize you said that you are no mechanic, but this job isn't hard at all. If it is one of the HPO lines and it is leaking at the HPOP, there is an o-ring kit you can buy from the dealer for $25. Its an easy job to do, even without the oil line removal tool. You will need a stubby wrench (I made my own with a hacksaw! lol) to get in there without removing the oil lines. I've never had to fix a turbo pedestal leak (yet), but I know others have done it many times.

If you don't feel like tackling it yourself, it may cost you an arm and a leg at the dealer. Or, it may cost you $100.

Depending on how many miles and how old your truck is, it may be covered under Warranty. The engine (including oil leaks) is covered for 100,000 miles or 5 yrs from the date first sold. The deductible for the warranty is $100.

If you're outside the warranty, then [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img]

Re: oil leak , how much to fix

Cost me a little over 300 bucks, at a non-dealer mechanic, if that gives you an idea.

Re: oil leak , how much to fix

Is there a cheaper place to get the o-ring kit? I hate spending that much on a couple o-rings. The stealership hit for $12 for 2 rings seals when i did the water pump. They ended up coming with the new thermostat and housing so I took them back right away.

Re: oil leak , how much to fix

I have had the two o rings under the fittings that go into the head for the HPOP oil lines leak on me 3 times. I have had them repaired at shops because of time available, I am going to do these myself.
I am also thinking the special hose end fittings need to go and be replaced with JIC fittings. Then they will not leak.
