Oil (I think) in compressor outlet
The big hoses that direct the turbo outlet air from the compressor side to the intercooler were bubbleing like a mini volcano. They obviously need replacing, but as I removed them I found traces of fluid (I think it's oil) exiting the compressor and into the intercooler. This fluid was the only reason I was able to visually see that the hoses were leaking (a good thing). But ..... it does not seem to me oil or anything else should be traveling along the induction system. I am still trying to figure out where I am very slowly loosing coolant. It was kinda messy, and looked like oil, but is there coolant passing through the turbo anywhere that could be leaking into the induction system? It does not seem the coolant would have enough pressure anywhere to overcome the pressures in the compressor.
If it is oil (and it seems like just a trace, enough to make a mess), where would it be comming from? What are my options?
