    Hi guys new here, had my car up on ramp to change the oil, and notice there was oil coming from around the turbo feed and return lines, also noticed there was some oil residue around the pipes connecting to the intercooler, does that sound like the seals on the turbo have gone? can see some smoke on idle, car drives and boosts normally, its a mk2 leon cupra

    thanks for any help

    Check inter cooler pipes for oil, bottom of the inter cooler or near the intake mani, if there's oil in there, not a good sign.

    Will probably try take the inter cooler pipes off and check them at the weekend, hopefully it’s not filled with oil
