|05 1.6 tdci intercooler pipe - jamesy|
I just went to top up the washer fluid and check the oil level today and noticed oil on the large intercooler pipe coming from a small crack next to the bracket that holds it onto the engine block, I understand this was a design fault on the 2005 focus.
I am a little bit worried as I thought only air is meant to be in that pipe and not oil, the oil level of the car is down slightly but I wouldn't have noticed this problem if I hadn't been looking under the bonnet (no loss of power, no hissing, no black smoke etc)
Is the 1st signs of the turbo going? The car has only done 60k so I would be really hacked off if it is!
Incidently I had the engine light on a few months back and Ford told me it was a dirty EGR valve and they cleaned it, the light went off but then came back on. I was told to take the revs a little higher and the light did go back off and hasn't been back on, could this be related?
Thanks in advance.
