Leaking pipe?


I'm thinking it's #2.

I was cleaning off the engine cover and noticed an oily covered pipe leading into the top of a turbo. This connection is just underneath the engine cover and left of the oil cap.

I'm I on the right track here?

Just pray it is not the #1. I have replaced both and #2 is easy. You don't even need to take off the turbocharger heat shield if you are good with tools. My #2 was a bit wet and they do seem to seep after a while. Also you may be getting some oil from a crankcase vent pipe if you have a poor connection.

#2 is the most common one. Seems everybody has to replace that one at some point
