why is there oil in the turbo output air tubes going into the air intercooler?

Asked by Dec 13, 2014 at 11:10 PM about the 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat Super Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The tube that directs the output high pressure air out of the turbo charger has oil drops and an oil film on the inside walls. It has built up a bit and has pooled a little in the connecter rubber boots that tie the tube to the intercooler.

Sounds like the turbo bearings are weak and need replacing. That's one of the possibilities.
