oil in intercooler pipes

i have a 99 7.3 and started to notice that the boots on my intercooler pipes have become oily. have havent started looking but my my first thought is that the turbo might be leaking. has this happened to anyone before?

A little oil in there is normal. That is where the CCV vents to. The CCV mod prevents that.

more or less. the crankcase vent is connected to the intake before the turbo. there is a slight vacuum, plus the little bit of crankcase pressure from blowby inside the engine, that draws the vapors in, as they travel through the tubes through the charge air, they are heavier than the air, so they settle. they will show up as oily residue around all the joints in the pressurized parts of the intake system.

do a search for the CCV Mod, there is an easy and inexpensive way to reroute the vent hoses to prevent it.

If you install a crankcase vent kit be careful how you run the line. If you have low spots the moisture will collect in the low spot and freeze if you drive in cold weather. This will create backpressure and push oil out of the engine. In my case (I live in Minnesota) the oil was pushed out of the turbo. Made a real mess. The solution was to shorten the line and make sure there were no low spots. I posted the problem as crankcase vent problem if you would like to read that thread.
