    How much oil should be coming out my Baileys DV???

    Hey ppl i know its early! lol

    Well cleaned up my engine bay the other day and checked in there last night and where the DV sits on the rocker cover there is some oil, its clean oil and i was just wondering does this mean the turbos gone? It doesnt smoke at all!
    Is it normal? How much oil should i be worried about??

    Thanks!!

    Mine used to be quite oily.

    I've recently replaced my knackered turbo and its still a bit oily.

    Last i saw it was covered.

    You should barely get any tbh unless you lube it as oil shouldnt really get upto the top pipes, mine are bone dry.
