Oil On Hood

Has anyone noticed oil splash on the underside of hood at oil filler cap. I noticed that my intercooler tube rest on the filler cap. I hope that this moving around has broken the cap. Any ideas?

No, it does not, however I assume it has psi rating like the overflow
> cap since it clicks.

yes, it has pressure on it. Maybe you need a new one....Mine actually blew a hold in the top of the cap at some point for some reason...had to replace it.

No, actually i never noticed that. I bet the boot on your inercooler pipe is cracked and spraying out oil

It's funny you say that because it looks like it could possibly be craked. I just would not think on a 2006 it would already be cracked.

This is a common issue...at least on the older ones....i too would think the 06 would have a better rubber boot.
