why is there oil in my intercooler piping

A strong acceleration up to 3200 to 3600 RPMs produces significant boost from the Turbo to blow-out accumulated oil in the Intercooler. Just take the RPMs up to those RPMs as you go through the gears. Doing this three or four times per tank of fuel will keep the oil blown out. If you do lots of stop and go traffic, do the procedure more often. RPMs up 4500 is not necessary considering peak boost occurs much sooner.


It has worked for my 2000 Jetta with over 351k miles on the OE turbo (where the vast majority of the oil comes from). Logging the amount of oil you get without taking into consideration the driving circumstances is not going to tell you very much, considering accumulation is related to babying the engine! How will you know what's safe? How can you establish the parameters? Josh8loop made a similar device just to keep the oil out.


He installed a small fitting and set up a solenoid valve with tubing to a catch container. He could push a button/flip a switch for a few seconds and the boost pressure would blow-out some of the accumulated oil.
Dear All, What is the best way to remove any engine oil that is in the exhaust system? My car's turbo blew and unfortunately oil from the engine has entered the exhaust system.


I intend to replace the turbo, oil feed pipe and clean the air pipes etc. but what is the best way to remove any oil from the exhaust system? Is there any chemical that I can pour into the car to help shift the oil or is it just a case of keep driving the car thus allowing the exhaust to reach a high enough temperature to burn the oil off? Many thanks as always.
