Turbocharger Oil Lines Leak Oil

Recall Details

The turbocharger oil supply lines may not be brazed properly, resulting in an engine oil leak. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the turbocharger oil supply tubes free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

Oil supply lines to the turbocharger in the engine compartment may leak engine oil. This could allow oil to leak onto hot engine components, creating a fire hazard.

What Should You Do?
