Good morning, To make a long story short I just bought a truck. 06 Freightliner Columbia with a 60 series in it. 627k miles on. Overall the trucks in decent shape.
After a week of driving it I started to notice a few oil leaks/seepage I know these 60 series are known for some of the issues. But I have a couple issues that came about that I have no idea if its all one problem. Or if it is, or can be multiple problems.
I started getting a slight smell of coolant here and there. I had to add a gallon of coolant over the week. But im not seeing where its leaking from.
Along with that (ill post a picture of this) I have a oil leak to what i think is the lower turbo oil return housing? I had planned to take it in, in 3 days. But im now taking it in tomorrow because im getting a medium white smoke out of the exhaust when im idling, also the truck is having puttering and also pushing less white smoke when starting in lower gears. Then I have no issue at all when its in higher gears.
Ive checked the oil it seems normal to me. Its definitely not milky/muddy. My blowby tube also might be dripping a little bit of oil. But i cant 100% tell because i think i have a oil leak at the back of the engine and i think its maybe dripping off from there.
So yeah thats kinda where im at..any ideas?
So I guess my general question would the part thats leaking thats shown in the picture. Would that for whatever reason have me pushing white smoke at all? Or is that a completely different issue all together.
