oil in intercooler
so i've been getting some white puffs of smoke when I start the truck after its been parked after a longer drive. thinking thats it probably something to do with oil getting in the intake system. I took the lower boot of the intercooler and pulled the intercooler off the truck. there was about 20 oz of oil that drained from the boot and lower pipe when i loosened it and with what came out of the intercooler itself when I blew air through it with the shop vac i ended up with probably around 30 oz of oil or right around a quart that was sitting in the bottom of the intercooler. with that said, what could it be?
Could it be the CCV, can the way the CCV is routed through the intake system deposit that much oil in your intercooler?
Or do I maybe have an issue with a turbo seal somewhere?
or is it something I'm not thinking of?
lets hear your thoughts. what do you think it could be?
