Exclamation HELP ASAP

Ok the guy I bought my truck from over filled the power steering fluid at one time causing it to pop the cap and shoot fluid everywhere....still degreasing and cleaing it up.well I got a wild hair and pulled my crappy K&N off and noticed the tube is crushed flat from him over tightening the clamps so it has been sucking air with out the filter for god knows how long! (still running fine no turbo probs or anything) but as i pulled that off i noticed some power steering fluid has made its way INTO THE INTAKE TUBE AND HAD SETTLED IN THE BOTTOM!!! about 1/2 a teaspoon...SHOULD I FREAK OUT NOW OR CLEAN IT UP AND FIX HIS &$^%@& and not worry!???

I dont think I would worry about the fluid, cause you get more oil than that in the turbo throught the Crank Case Ventilation. I would change out that K and N for a better filter.

Heck maybe that fluid caught some of the dust that would have ordinarily gone through your turbo. You could pull the intake off and check the compressor wheel for peace of mind.

Ok everything is good! as i took the K&N intake off..in the side of the K&N air box was a small sensor just stuck in it...its a simple plug in type with two very short wires sticking out...almost looks like a mass air slow sensor...but under the filter?????

I would clean it up, install a better filter then the K&N. Since the truck is running good. I would not worry about any damage. As others have said the oil may have help prevent any damage that may have been caused by the extra dirt getting pass the filter.

As Vital said if your worried about it. Remove the intake tube and inspect the compressor wheel.
