funny story but need help...

well last night a buddy and i were taking off my IC pipe that runs from the IC to my intake manifold. well we got the pipe off and there was oil in the pipe. it wasn't a thin little layer, but it wasn't a heavy amount of oil. my buddy wiped his finger in the pipe and pulled it out and said " Uh... dude... when was the last time you changed your intercooler fluid?" i couldn't help but bust out laughing... but my question is, it isn't normal for the oil to be there is it? and i'm guessing it's coming from my turbo? maybe a bad seal? if anyone could explain to me what's going on and how to fix it i would appreciate it! Thanks!

It's coming from the turbo and/or the CCV. It's normal to find some oil in the intake system.

It's normal for some oil to get past the seals in the turbo, especially if you idle a lot. Also, if you have the stock CCV setup, your crankcase vapors are going back into your intake system... it's normal for some oil from that to collect in the intake.

Just keep an eye on things. If you start getting some blue smoke out the exhaust and a lot of oil in the intake, that would indicate that your turbo is leaking more oil than normal and could be on its way out.
