Your turbo may be both oil- and water-cooled. If that's the case, you may have a leak at one of the coolant hoses going either to or from the turbo. Important to get it looked into soon - a turbo designed for water and oil cooling, but possibly not getting all the water cooling it's set up for - is probably going to have problems before too long. Turbos spin so fast and get so hot that you don't want to have any compromises in your system.

I have a1999 2500 suburban turbo diesel. the truck is missing coolant, but the driveway is dry. there is no noticeable leak. the still car runs great. please help

Sounds like a pin hole in one of your smaller hoses, perhaps over the motor where the water that's lost is hitting on the engine & drying before it gets to the ground. Can add some dye or food coloring to the water to make it a little easier to find. After pulling into the driveway, with the motor still running, inspect all the smaller hoses, heater hoses, etc. with gloves & a rag move the hoses from side to side, if the hole is under a clamp this should allow you to see the leak, especially with coloring in the water. If the hole is under a clamp it will only be lost under operating pressure.

No, under the turbo there is a cooling hose with a heat wrap around it that kind of looks like tin foil, that hose probably has a pinhole in it and needs to be changed, which is a difficult job (bad design).

well the question is where did the coolant go. if it didnt leak out it must have went out the pipe. As you stated, white smoke, white smoke is coolant. You definately need to get this to the shop. You cannot drive it this way or further damage will occur.

I think the labor to check out the leak is too much.
If a qualified tech. pressurizes the system, he should tell more or less where it's coming from.
Could be freeze out plug.

Oil leak on top of engine behind turbo

MY 2001 7.3 was leaking the same way. The dealer said the o'rings under the pedestal were leaking. I had the dealer replace the o'rings. By the time I got home, it was leaking again. Called the service department and told the manager,and they put on a new pedestal and o'rings. They only charged me half price for the pedestal and no labor. That did stop the leaks.
