Intercooler??

I did a good power wash on my engine compartment a couple of weeks ago. There was a lot of dust stuck to oil on the rubber boot on what I think is the turbo inlet side for the intercooler. It is on the drivers side below the battery about even with the power steering pump. Blue rubber hose about 6 inches long. I noticed today that it is covered in dirt and oil again. No fluids hitting the ground but what could be leaking? Power steering pump seems fine and isn't throwing any fluid.

Your CCV. It isn't leaking, you are just pulling oil into your intake. There are different ways to mod it to stop it. I just ordered the kit from NChornet.

Thanks Cotton. What causes this in the first place and how big of a issue is it? Truck has 125 K miles on it. Seems to run perfect.
