    Default oil coming from boost pipe

    cdti 150 ,ive noticed fresh oil coming from boost pipe where it joins onto turbo ,i know oil mist inside pipes are normal but i was thinking if oil can leak from the joint, air under boost will defo leak ,i dont think its boosting like it should and i do get a blip in boost under hard acceleration somtimes any thoughts people
    no engine light and no faults stored ,could it be possibly be slightly leaking boost but not enough to trigger fault

    What mileage is the car??
    Hate to say it, but the oil you found could be leaking pass the turbo seal.
    The turbo has an oil feed.
    The feeling of loss of power when you put your foot down could be the turbo slowing down when it chucking oil about the inlet manifold.
    Hopefully somebody else can help more with the 1.9CDti turbo, I have a 2.0Dti and know too much about my turbo already.
