Its like a riddle. I blew a hose off my intercooler piping right before the intercooler. When i went to put it back on i felt inside the pipe and there was oil. It was brown. Inside my p1sc the oil is bluish. The car also puffs a little white smoke.

Also under the head unit there is some brown oil. It doesnt ever drip on the ground or anything.

Any ideas whats going on? I think some oil is getting sucked into the motor from somewhere?

Yeah its because the the pcv valve feeds oil back into the intake. Its not a a big deal, happens to 99% of boosted cars. Best option if it concerns you is to get an oil seperator.

Can you explain more? So what is the PCV valve is the line from the valve cover to the intake? Why does it happen on boosted cars?

Acually the one on the driver side is the crancase breather or some ****. The passenger one is a pcv valve. Im not sure exactly, but it has something to do with blow by. Its really not a big deal. Anyone that tells you it is a big deal, is over exacurating.

The Valve cover breather is on the drivers side. Then it goes to the intake. Could the oil hurt my headunit?

yes and no. What kind of supercharger do you have? Even if its self contained no it wont hurt you.

If its a Vortech V1 or V2 where it uses oil from the engine, theres no way it would hurt you.

A P1SC Procharger. Yeah Self contained. So your saying its sucking it out of the valve cover and sending it through the blower?

Pretty much yes. Idk if the blower itself is sucking it out which it could be, but regardless its not bad.

Like I said, if it bothers you, get an oil separator.

Just as long as its not bad. Seems wierd, you think it can make it way from valve cover thru head unit thru all intercooler piping AND the intercooler?
