The turbocharger return pipe seal may develop an oil leak. The leak can begin very small, but will eventually progress into a large leak. Our technicians recommend having this repaired at first signs of leakage.

Driving down the rd and all a sudden the oil light came on so figured I just needed oil. Put some in and about a mile down the rd did it again and said about oil pressure low so I stopped and looked under car and oil was just pouring out. Think it's coming from the return pipe Bc there's allot of oil near the turbo and according to every site that's right where they say oil will be if the seal goes.

Lost plug on return line for models without turbocharger (where turbocharger would be if it had one, there is a plug instead) created oil leakage.

Had the seal replaced
