    Hey yall my dad has a huge leak on his 1995 F-250 Powerstroke. I know, its a F**D but its been a good running truck. Anyways, theres at least a quart or more of oil on top of the intake manifold. I've looked and looked but I cant see where its leaking from. The oil is from front to back of the engine. Oil being at the front makes me think its not the turbo lines leaking. Any Ideas?

    A buddy of mine works in the oil field. All of their trucks are Ford Powerstrokes. He said that they've had the same problem that I've got. He said an o ring went out but I dont know where that might be. Any Ideas on this?

    Thanks in advance for all the help.

    Dustin

    no joke a friend of mine just had the same thing happen to his powerstroke. turned out it was an o-ring on a oil line that goes into the turbo, it leaked so badly oil would not stay in it. I've heard since that its very common
