Oil in charge air cooler

I'm getting oil into the air duct between the turbo and the charge air cooler on the right side. The oil is seeping through the rubber hose connecting the air duct to the bottom of the air cooler. Is this normal? Help!

It is caused by the PVC valve. If you do the PVC reroute it should solve this prob. PVC REROUTE Write up.Also fill out your sig so we know more about your truck it will help us help you.

X2. Had that problem, 'till I rerouted my PVC into an open system. No more oil in the 'charger and IC lines.

Does it kinda look like this...?







I was putting in my intercooler and saw this, and couldnt stop thinking about how my bank account couldnt handle a f*cked turbo... But its normal. And the re-route will solve the problem, but leaving it be wont hurt anything either .

I did mine about 10,000 miles ago and my engine stays so clean-- I just dust it off!

Yes, you could just leave it alone- it won't hurt anything-- but will continue to dump the oil and restricts the flow and you loose horsepower!

It is normal for it to look like that,but not necessarily healthyI just clean mine real good at the hose connections@ every 5-10k.It will not hurt,but in the long run the engine life will somewhat be shortened.Period...
