Default Turbo oil return line leak

I noticed while under the car installing another oil pressure sending unit (#2) that there was a leak around the turbo oil return line fitting. I checked to insure that the 8mm bolts were tight, and they were. I don't want to remove the line until I have the right gasket or seal. Has any one else had this happen? Was the gasket special (composite w/copper seal) or just high temp gasket material?

I've got a 2003 GT and the same thing just happened with mine. The hose developed a leak right at the clamp. It was a quick and relatively cheap fix though.

I called the dealer, the gasket is $0.25 each, but they have to order it! The gasket will be in tuesday. I'm buying 3 so next time I'll have it on hand. I bet most of the GT's out there are leaking, but you can't tell unless you crawl underneath and look. At 25 cents I don't think it is a special composite gasket with copper sheet etc.

Well the gaskets came in, but only 2(I ordered 3). They look larger that the 2 bolt flange from what I remembered. They are cheap and have a thin edge which explains why they will leak. If these are too big I will make my own rather that wait another 4 days for the dealer to order the right ones.You would think that something as important as an oil line would warrant a better gasket!Other GT owners may want to look under the turbo, and check for a leak before they see a spot in the driveway!

I believe I have this same issue.

Oil is leaking down the intercoooler pipe and onto the ground.

What is the easiest way to get to the line?

Go to the Members Projects section. Look for busted PT 1 and look for the rebuilding the turbo stuff and shortly after that will be t install. I for got that gasket. So I had to go back and put that in after the turbo was in. That will help you with how to do it without removing the turbo.
