Oil return hoses

Recommended Posts

Just a reminder to check the 2 hoses ( one on each side ) that run fron the turbos to the oil sump.

Came in the garage yesterday to find 4 quarts of oil on the floor!!! One of the hose was cut at 2 places

where the collars are...Car is 4 years old and 23K miles...Replace both hoses!!! Inexpensive protection!!!

My car leaks from this area as well so I was going to replace the pipes and seal up the joint of the pipe onto the bottom of the turbo.

Question is - is the level of the sump oil lower than these return pipes?? Don't want to remove them and get a load of oil on the floor.

I think it is safer to drain your oil before disconnecting the hoses...That's what I did.
