On the drivers side correct? Also tends to be leaky from the orange boots on top of the engine near the turbo.
What happens is the Crankcase gasses are vented into the air intake causing a fine oil mist to be introduced into the air intake and burned up in the combustion process. All normal. You will see a little doghouse on top of the drivers side valve cover. A small 3/4" size 90 degree angle hose is connecting the doghouse to the air intake. This is where the crancase gasses are being sent into the air intake. What happens is the oil builds up over time and starts to seep out through the intercooler boots.
Many people do the CCV mode to remove the crancase gasses from the intake and reroute them to atmosphere. Here is a link to the modifacatioin. The mod does not hurt the engine in any way, as a matter of fact this is how the commercial application of this engine designed. UPS Trucks, school buses, etc.....
Here is the link to the mod.
