    Default Help identifying pipe in engine bay

    Excuse my ignorance, but I need help identifying the pipe I circled in red in the photo of 1.9CDTI 150. Mine is quite oily to the touch, the oil seems to sweat out of the pipe since its been like that for a long time. Car behaves normally no fault codes. Is it a turbo pipe does it mean turbo seals are shot if there is so much oil sweating out of it. Thanks,

    dont worry about small amounts of oil in the intercooler pipeing, its perfectly normal, if your turbo seals where gone you would see blue smoke coming out of the exhaust.

    the larger pipework is indeed part of the intercooler/boost pipework... the traces of oil are commonly caused by the crankcase vent system which is a closed system & the standard catch tank isn't up to the job
