A certain ammount of oil seepage from the air intake pipe on the turbo is quite common, its due to the fact that the crankcase ventilation system discharges into the air intake and condenses there, you will probably find the whole of the intake system is oily inside. If it drives OK I wouldn't worry about it.

I know Vauxhall is a valued British historic asset, name, brand

Get your car out of Vauxhalls quick, and find a local garage.

If you leave it with their nice, name tagged, people, you will be left with a bill bigger than your mortgage, never mind the car.

Ask the window cleaner. Ask the dustbin wallah. At no event, ever, ever, take it to Vauxhall.

"what is a pressure relive valve" Every car has one it is a relief valve that regulates the maximum pressure of the oil. Why would Vauxall identify a simple seal on the pressure relief valve if they could have charged you for a replacment turbo. Regards Peter
