The oil residue inside the turbo is normal and has nothing to do with a loss of coolant. The Crank Case Ventilation system lets some oily vapors get sucked into the intake which in turn leaves an oily coating in all the intake hoses and intercooler.
Whenever one of your intake hoses blows off you need to get all the oily residue off before you reinstall it or it will just keep blowing off.
I found that squirting some starting fluid on the hose a then wiping it off good does a great job of removing the oil!!!
A loss of coolant could be anything such as a bad coolant cap, leaking EGR cooler, or leaking headgaskets.
