:helpOk guys i need help. My truck has been eating coolant the past couple of days and just now found the "area" of a leak. Its coming from the right of the turbo under the driver side fuel rail. atleast thats where i tracked it to. theres puddles in the vaulve cover allenhead screws. Now...heres where it gets good, its also eating oil slowly with no oil leaks anywhere or buildup of oil. and there is smoke (only a slight haze but def. oil smoke) coming from the pcv vaulves. i have it rerouted so i can see right at the end of the hose. My first thought is headgaskets but there is no other signs of headgasket failure (i.e. Hard hose, bubbles, ect.). So is there anywhere neer the fuel rail coolant travels that might be leaking before i take the dive into headgaskets?


AND... i just realized i put this thread in the 06' lly. mines a 04.5 lly lol. i dont think it matters though really

After swapping turbos I had a turbo coolant line spring a leak in that same area. Replaced it with a new piece of hose (3/8 I believe) and all is well. It was just a small pin hole and would only leak when running, made it a sum bitch to find
