    Default Possible oil leak from turbo

    Hi, new to the forum, been on VxOn for ages before here. Noticed this the other day, just wondering what it could be, I will try to clean it up to look for any new leaks. Any help appreciated, Gaz.

    first'ly hi! and welcome, thats the under side view of a cdti 150 ??, thats a common leak coming from the turbo / intercooler pipe its oil dripping from the joint mine's been like that from 12months old but its a pig to get to and tighten the jubilee clip, the dip-stick level dont seem to drop at all so i just give it a wipe when i change the oil.

    Hi, thanks for the reply, not too up on turbos, is it air that passes through this pipe? I'll try and clean it up and see how it goes, cheers Gaz.

    Just an update, the garage tightened the jubilee clip as it was a bit loose so we shall see how it goes.
