Changed oil today, saw quite a bit of oil leaking out of charge piping

I'm going to being the car in next Monday to have them take a look at this, and the bubbling sound in some of the coolant work along with my low coolant in the reservior issue.

Looking at my charge piping passenger side of intercooler, is physically wet with oil. So that tells me not only does the charge piping leak because fluid is coming out, but my PCV or turbo is kinda of gnarly right now.

I honestly have never seen a turbo based vehicle that didn't have this problem with an active in the inlet, but I'd be interested to see if it's a turbo issue.


Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this issue?

There are a few reports of the turbo seals going and leaking oil. It's not a common problem, and isn't unheard of either.

I bet it's the turbo. Remember, they're oil and coolant cooled. If one or a few of the seals went, that would explain the missing oil and bubbling coolant as exhaust gas got forced into the coolant.
