Default Oil in intake hose.

So last night while my timing belt was getting done(on my 1.8l) I decided to take a look at my throttle body to make sure it was clean. I noticed that the intake hose had oil in it. I figured it was from the PCV or the hoses coming from the valve covers. Is there anything that can be done about this?

If it's just blowby you can get a catchcan and filter out that gunk from being recirculated through your intake. Otherwise its normal and not much can be done to reduce it.

If you have a puddle of oil in your throttle body or intercooler...you may have a more serious issue ie. turbo going out, etc.

The guy has a 1.8 N/A motor.


Sorry Scoobking, not sure about your situation. As mentioned, if it was just a film of oil it could be from the filter. I get OEM replacements and sometimes they are more soaked than others...

I'm interested to know what's going on too, and I found this...

The problem was an unattached PCV. Hope this helps.

Now that I think about it, I did find one of the hoses unattached. I just hooked it back up and put a spring clamp on it. I'll check in a few weeks if that fixed the problem. Thanks for the help. =)
