    Vehicle : vectra-c

    Engine : cdti

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 98,000

    Default Inlet manifold/oil

    ok, as we all know the inlet manifolds are crap on the cdti 150, Ive been keeping an eye on the oily mess and cleaning it up now and again with tissue, WHERE does the oil come from?, it does not come via the egr because its dry carbon /sooty so i presume its coming to the inlet via the inter cooler, so again i presume the oil comes from the turbo seals, yet my dipstick level does not move from change to change??, any ideas why its so oily.

    Could it be anything to do with the fact diesel is an oil rather than a solvent?. It would be interesting to know how far oil "seepage" goes into the exhaust. I dare say my idea is way off the mark, but the oil is coming from somewhere. strange "eh".

    its the dirty used type engine oil, the only place i can think of is oil passing turbo seals because there is no contact with oil before that.
