    I can't do this one my own and would be afraid if I tried to just replace a seal or something less involved that it wouldn't fix it, so I'm sort of at their mercy. But good lord...$900 for such a simple problem? Seems like Ford would have made the connections replaceable.
    I'm surprised they are replacing the entire run of coolant lines to the turbos. In my case, and most I have read about on this forum, it is the plastic quick connectors that connect the coolant lines to the turbos that failed and needed to be replaced (but I am not sure if those connectors are on my 2012 while not on your 2014).

    Coolant leak near turbo?

    My 2014 with 33k miles has a faint coolant smell and the reservoir was a little low. And this was after a 1500 mile trip.
    Looks the same

    Gents, I have the same issue but on the passenger side turbo. Luckily, I just passed my warranty so I get to do this myself. The parts diagram is pretty vague, I'm assuming that the 4 in/out coolant lines are some combination of items 23-29 but can't really tell. Anyone want to decypher this picture? The leak is on the top line, passenger side turbo and do I need the line or can just the o-ring be replaced (which isn't shown at all). Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    So all of my choices were wrong! I found the part number for the fittings here https://www.f150forum.com/f70/turbo-...e-leak-275810/ and just ordered them from Tascaparts. We'll see how the repair goes next weekend!

    I'm feeling your guys pain as well. One dealer quoted $1300 to fix the drivers side turbo coolant line that runs to the back of the engine where you can't reach. It is the rubber o ring inside the quick connects that fail. The quick connects on the turbos and on the engine block are of different thread sizes. a 21 MM socket is needed to remove the ones on the engine block.

    I attempted to do this myself and got as far as removing the e-clip from the quick connect and pulling the line on the back of the engine. I am unable to get a socket on the quick connect to remove and fix the rubber o-ring inside. Had it towed to another Ford dealership and they tell me because of my 'after-market parts' they don't want to touch it. I even said, just replace the coolant line and quick connect and i'll reassemble the intake manifold, throttle body and CAI in their parking lot. Service manager is saying no to this... What the hell do I do? These quick connections are a mess to deal with.

    The only after market parts involved with this are the AFE CAI, AFE Charge Pipe and the water meth kit after the throttle body.

    Update; Service manager gave it second thought and allowed me to discuss which actual line it was with the technician. Personally, thats a first for a Ford dealership allowing me to discuss anything with a technician. Service writer called back and quoted 525 to replace that line only and I'll be responsible for putting intake manifold, etc. back together. Whew... Just waiting on parts to be ordered and installed. I double confirmed with the technician which parts are on order and he did me a solid by also ordering new seals for the coolant cross over bar that runs underneath the intake. I'm just crossing my fingers there are no other issues. ETA is end of day tomorrow, lets hope its a good Friday night with the new CR Performance exhaust manifolds / Full Race turbos / 170 Tstat / and new tunes!

    Same here. I have the Ford ESP full warranty (7 years/75K miles). Since the leak is from the coolant hose it is not covered. The hose is $28, but it takes five hours of labor to get to it. (estimate $900) Bad engineering.

    Leak is not from hose, per say, but from the quick connect rubber o-ring that is attached to engine block and or turbo. Most people are replacing the OEM setup with AN fittings and braided hoses. Wish I had gone that route. SMH!
