    CAC = charge air cooler. I would ask your mechanic to pressure test the charge air cooler with the turbo inlet hose/pipe still connected to the CAC. I've seen mechanics just test the CAC and never test the hoses. If they had tested the hose, they would of noticed the hole on the back side.

    So, before you do anything, check the oil....smell it, if it smells like fuel.....How's the engine temperature, oil temp and the idle...is it a little rough .....????

    Do it yourself, you buy the kit with a pump and suck out the oil via the dipstick tube...(YouTube is your friend)....then, you can mail it, take it to Hammond Cat (5 minutes from the yard) or better yet, take it to CAT in Elmhurst where the lab is, and that all makes the process that much quicker than snail mail......
     
    4noReason Thanks this.
