    oil in the pipe is most likely normal from the vent in the top of the driverside valve cover that is directed into the intake hose between the turbo and the airfilter. Most people tale the hose out of the intake, turn the box on top of the valve cover around and run a length of hose over the back of the mastercylender and down under the truck past the back of the cab.
    The oil pan leak is usuall no the pan. They do rusts out causing a leak. But more than likely the leak is coming from the base of the turbo on the passengers side where the rod comes out. This is also quite normal. Most people remove the valve in the outlet of the turbo and plug the hole in the base where the rod comes out. Do some reading on sites like
