    Turbo O-Ring Leak

    Did the oil change today Mobil 1 0w-40 and noticed and oil leak! Found the culprit to be the copper o-ring for the turbo. What is the best way to replace? Could I get to it from the top of the engine?

    Give it a quarter turn snug before replacing, you can get at from top with engine cold but you are working blind so snug it up a bit before replacing.
