intake oil saturated
I pulled the intake elbow off my dad's "06" to drill/tap a boost gauge hole, I found a small puddle of oil in the intake tube bellow's, and inside the intake mani was coated in blackened oil.
I checked the oil level, it read in the half safe area when i checked it because i thought it could be using oil from the turbo seal.
He did mention to me that it has not been running right.
Could that be the problem of why it is running like that , and i am on the right track. Can the oil be coming from a bad turbo seal?
The thing is, The elbow is clean, But there is a puddle before in the bellows after intercooler tube, and inside of mani is nasty oily black!
It has around 40000 on it and is under warranty.
