Acouple of issues(pics)

Ok i have two pictures. The first one is the passenger side intercooler tube at the intercooler. It has soot covering the boot. What is happening here?

The second pic is from underneath the truck looking at the lower radiator hose. If you look closely theres what appears to be oil on the pulley at the top of the pic, and at the bottom part of the radiator hose. Also the radiator tube seams to have collected some kind of fluid, maybe coolant all over it. I'm thinking the clamp, and hose is old and need to be replaced. You guys take a look and give me your expert opinions. Thanks guys.

That's not soot covering the boot, that is oil covered in dirt. And if I had to guess, I'd say your leak on the hose is coming from the t-stat housing. They like to weep.

Where do you think the dirty oil on the boot is coming from?

Ya, looks like coolant thatbhas dried on the lower hose. T-stat oe water pump maybe.

Oil in the intake/inter cooler from blow by. Normal, but some do the CCV mod To stop it Crank Case Vent (CCV) Bypass Modification | SuperMotors.net

Looks more like oil from the intercooler boots that has now picked up dust and debris from the air as the truck runs.

No, the IC boots shouldn't leak when installed properly.

Sweet...ive already ordered new boots from Dieselsite.com. Just have to wait to get home in 3 months to put them on. Ive got a new thermostat, thermo housing and lower radiator hose as well so that should take care of the other issue.

The boots just become oil soaked and it just works its way through the boot. Just do the CCV mod when you put on the new boots and you will no longer have that issue.

Riff Raff has nicer colored ones

From what i understand there made of different materials though. Silicone isnt compatibale with oil and fuel, therefore it breaks down over time. The folks at Dieselsite claim ther stuff is made from some different material, can handle higher boost, and resist heat better than stock ones. I'm going to give them a shot and see how they do.
