    Oil Coming Out Of Dv

    as above,, iv been having a little trouble with my car, mk4 gsi,, it is not holding boost,, well i booked it in for a custom sport's cat to be fitted,, 7 week's later it went in today ,(which im very happy about may i say),, so i asked the machanic if he could have a little look for me,,, telling him about the boost problem,, well when i picked it up ,, he had a look then , and straight away,, he found fresh oil coming out of my baily's dv,, he said it had some thing to do with the turbo ,, but didnt know what it could be,, but said it could still be loseing boost from a split pipe, or any thing ,,

    just realy want too know what it mean's when there's oil coming out of the dv,,

    very greatful for any helpful reply's

    a little bit of oil in the pipes and coming out of the dv is normal, its the crankcase breather that attaches onto the crossover pipe that causes it, owt silly more than a iccle bit, prob then could be seals on turbo

    you will always get a little but of oil coming through the dv with is nothing to worry about but how much oil are you getting through it as if its like dripping through the dv then the turbo seals could be passing or its getting blown back though the throttle body. It would probably be the turbo tho as it is a comon fault on the zlets.

    How many miles has your GSI done and has the turbo been replaced at any time?

    a big thank's for the reply's, the turbo was changed at courtenay sport, on 01/02/08 at 62416 ,, it's got 69ish on it now, glad to hear that there's some oil can be found there,, it's not load's but there is some there, well it's not holding boost,, so there's some thing wrong so ill get a guy to have a look at it,,, the turbo is still under warranty for a 3ish more week's so going to get some 1 look at it asap, befor the warranty run's out,,

    again very greatful for the reply's lads
