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.

    Just found the oil leak and will clean engine and replace seal.

    Misdiagnosed by 2 different mechanics until I had the bottom of the car pressure washed. It will turn into a big leak if ignored and agree with the advice to get it fixed asap.
