PD2 SR 1.6l oil line leak?!
« September 14, 2018, 04:24:15 »
Hey all,

Was poking around the car this evening (put some LED interior lights in)  and while I had the bonnet open I noticed some liquid around a hose.  Closer inspection it appears to be oil coming from a line that goes from above the exhaust manifold to under the airbox.  I assume this may lead to the turbo? 

Just wondering if anyone has the same issue,  what this line is and whether there should be a clamp on it? I have attached some pics. The car has only done 250km. 

Thanks everyone. 

JONESY 👊

Doesn't look like a leak, maybe moisture mixing with the detailing spray the service mob have sprayed over the plastics :undecided: give it a wipe and see if it returns.

Looks like a low pressure vacuum line, wont be to turbo as that's at the back of the engine.

Thanks @CraigB  figured it was a vac line of some sort,  it's definitely oil and I've wiped it and will see if it returns.  I had already wiped it  but there was distinct droplets around the hose tail.  Must go from there back the intake as apart of the re-circ?

I've been looking for the turbo but had trouble finding it,  it's that small lol makes sense it's at the back.
