You should start in the Diesel Discussion subsection of this forum

Assuming it wasn’t doing this before you removed the manifold, you probably knocked some wires or connectors loose. Check the wires and connectors for:

- crank position sensor on the bell housing flange below/behind the oil filter housing
- oil pressure sensor on the oil filter housing
- ELR actuator on the tail end of the injection pump

You’ll have to sort the broken bolt. I smear RTV on both sides of the gasket between the crossover pipe and intake manifold. It doesn’t go on very tight as you discovered. There shouldn’t be that much oil there in the first place. Check whether it’s blowby into the turbo or a tired turbo seal, then fix it.

The Diesel Discussion folks will have lots of advice for you.
