Hello I have oil driping from the back of my turbo, it looks like it is driping from the wastgate saft, the truck is also putting out white smoke? is my turbo shot ? the truck seems to run just fine? I have 85,000 miles on it. Spike481

They can leak some from the EBV shaft. There is no waste gate shaft. (No jab intended) Leaking from the EBV is pretty common. I am NOT sure if you can rebuild that or not? May be best to take the turbo off...then "GUT" the EBV. Even if you live in a colder climate,,they are minimaly used. Mostly on warm up if you let it idle. UNDER load (Driving) they will warm up nicely anyway. Very Common for lots in here to have them gutted. You drill out the end of the shaft I think,,,then you have to tap it..and put in an NPT pipe biggie.
I am going with a VAN turbo...they DONT COME with and that pretty much tells you how important it is to FORD,,doesnt it? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif The exhaust port is bigger on them too!
