Oily intercooler pipe

Recommended Posts

Hi i was doing an oil change on my 530d today and noticed under the o/s intercooler pipe it was oily. I disconnected it and there was oil inside. Is this a sign my turbo is on its way out? Thanks

i was under the car today doing a full egr delete and noticed the exact same but on both sides i think there may be a seal inside causing it too leak

The oil is from the engine breather, the big issue with vortex version of engine breathers.

Dropped my engine cover yesterday and the intercooler pipes are all nice and oily too.. It's always like that. I need to find a better way of connecting the pipework... i did try new seals about 5 years ago but that didn't work

Is that breather that sits at the rocker cover? I replaced that lastyear with a genuine bmw item. Thanks for the replies
