Oil under the Turbo/behind oil cooler

Like the title says there is oil under the turbo and behind the oil cooler, I am getting new CAC boots because they have oil on them. Any input would help, thank you.

Really easy! but you dont need to change it if its not cracked it may just need a new
o-ring.

You have the new updated one correct? The new style is the Ridge tube the old style is the steel braided line.


Also if you change the CAC boots. Make sure you do the CCV re-route.

Ok I will have to check that out, where is that line exactly? I do not know if it is old or new style. What is rerouting the ccv? Sorry, big time noob at most of this.

Wow that does look simple. I will probably do something like that. Does doing that throw a code or harm your engine? If it keeps exhaust gases and all out that's awesome lol.

More than likely you have an air leak from your CAC boot connection that is allowing oily air to coat the outside of your boot and localized area. It may be possible you have a worn out CAC boot as this is fairly common. I doubt you have an oil feed gasket issue.

Without a better picture, it is also possible you may have a minor turbo seal issue where the compressor bolts to the CHRA. In any case, you really don't have much of a problem to deal with, assuming you even want to fix something.

The CCV reroute will prevent the boots from becoming saturated with oil, but it is not high on my list of "must do" projects.

What is the CHRA?

Also what diameter clamps do I need to order with the Riff Raff CAC boots? I took a screenshot the clamps. I just have figured out I know next to nothing about diesels lol.

Also says Turbo clamps are 2.75 and drivers side I/C is 3.25. I am just confused lol.
