No oil in the egr. Just air, soot, and sometimes coolant:LOL:. The elbow shouldn't have that much oil leaking from it, unless the boot is leaking and blowing oil from the ccv.

Check your boot clamps, but if you're just talking about residue it's normal. I wash mine at least once a month. I've never had a diesel that stayed clean under the hood.
