Thanks Loren, oil leak was the new VDO sending unit on
head, not in far enough.
Replaced a glow plug in #3 with spare set I had, that
made things worse on start up.  So, it is time to pull
the injectors and look down the hole to see which ones
are working and not.  I will do a compression test at
the same time.

The motor has almost no oil head pressure at idle once
it is up to operating temp.  25 psi when up to shift
speed.  Oil pressure on cold start is 30-40psi at the
head.  No low oil pressure warning lights went off
when I was sitting at the traffic light with no oil
pressure showing on the gauge.  Just an odd feeling.

That tells me intermediate shaft bearings were not
replace, only the intermediate shaft oil seal on the
block face.  Yes, would you all agree?

Could be oil pump as well, but I bet my oil pressure
down at the oil filter flange is good.

I have also not heard the turbo spin up yet at all,
but maybe k14 turbo is very quiet?  I need to get my
boost gauge in there do see what is up.  Power seems
great, motor runs well, so all in all, I am almost
Now, if this gigantic rain storm would only stop that
started Sunday afternoon, Today is Tuesday, it is
supposed to go through tomorrow.  Hard to test drive a
car in the rain.....
