oil from the EGR valve (into the manifold)
#1
as title says i have a tiny oil spray from the EGR valve and into the manifold

also seems to be pushing quite a bit of oil spray (nothing huge mind) into the intake pipe to the turbo resulting in a wet pipe and turbo.

wondering whether this can be sorted by uncloging a vent somewhere on the head/rocker box cover, or moving a pipe thats blocked etc.

EGR has been disconnected.

The egr cannot leak oil spray oil or anything like that as it has no oil contact at all. By disconnected do you mean youve just pulled the vac pipe off or pulled tge plug. It may stick be stuck open will need.coming off and blanking if so. The residue u get with them sorta looks like thick tar btw.

Its more than likely the turbo then. Egrs dont have oil of any description going to or from them. Its a valave that opens to let exhaust gasses back into manifold. Thats it.

yeah i was sure it wasnt leaking around the EGR, but it is leaking slightly around the seal (from the manifold to the EGR pipe, that godawful corrugated thing that PSA used).

it seams most of it is appearing through the breathers for the rocker box covers, and entering the system via the air pipe from the filter side of the turbo (has a breather in there from the rocker box)
