Did someone spill oil near your air intake but the air filter, did it rain recently, did you drive through some oil that could have got up in your filter, do u have an oil leak.


Thanks for the response . I did have an oil leak but sorted it out I cleaned up the total system including inter cooler to ensure there is no oil. It only happens when I drive fairly fast not sure why
