2013 Ford F-150 FX4 Screw Cab
So at 148,500 miles ol girl has started to leak. Brought her into the Ford quicklane for an oil change and while it was back in the shop and they were actually doing their “multi point” inspection they noticed a few... yes a few leaks. They brought me out to the shop to show me what they found. Starting with the vacuum pump it was leaking pretty noticeably as you could actually see some burnt oil on top of the passenger side turbo and dripping down from there as well as the build up all around the vacuum pump itself. This one, I believe, actually solves the burnt oil/exhaust smell the wife smelled on our trip home a couple weeks ago from MS to NC. The second leak was the water pump which had some white streaks underneath it which showed signs of coolant. The third leak while on that side looking up from underneath it (truck was on a rack) you could see some oil build up around the front engine cover toward the top. Without cleaning it up the mechanic said he couldn’t tell where it was coming from. Eventually he lowered my truck back down to show me a top view of the leak which was definitely noticeable. As far as that one goes I think it may not be a leak from the truck but a leak from the hose of my old UPR catch can before I removed it. So that spot/area could just have been where it was dripping and building up. The fourth leak was the driver side turbo seal between the compressor housing and turbine housing. It looked like there was just a slight amount of oil around it but it was definitely there. Truck is still at the shop now. I have an extended warranty on the truck but they have to come inspect the truck and back check the mechanic before they can approve the repairs. Currently the main repairs they are focused on are the vacuum pump and water pump because they can tell for sure they are leaking. They are going to further inspect the two other leaks to find out exactly what is going on while they have it.
