    Default Oily residue over the engine?

    Ok so my rocker is leaking a bit.
    But all my hoses seem to be getting an oily residue over them? My intercooler pipes have been getting oil in them too which is making my map sensor play up.
    Iím wondering if my crankcase breather or something like that may be blocked?

    Apparently my car had a new turbo last year. I donít get any smoke on tick over or when I give it the beans.

    Just donít get why Iím getting oily residue everywhere. As though the engine is being covered by a mist of oil. Surely that canít be from just the rocker gasket leaking?
    Maybe this is a stupid question.

    I had the same issue. Replaced my rocker gasket and didnt change. Turned out it was the filler cap seal for about £1, oil gets everywhere it might be worth trying before changing the rocker gasket.

    Try a simple check first; Remove the gasket on the oil cap, clean around the area under the filler. Flip the gasket upon reinstalling it. Small piece of debris under the gasket could cause the issue.

    What's this about small pieces?
