    Default “Wet” 508 HDi

    Hi AF’ers....

    Last week, was chasing an oil leak and found the passenger side of lower engine shield was wet along with the lower intercooler hose. All clamps are tight, wiped it all down at the time.

    On further investigation tonight, lower intercooler hose is wet again on the outside and noticed the entire intercooler is ‘damp’. On removing upper intercooler hose from where it runs into the intake, the inside of the hose is quite ‘wet’ with visible drops/pooling.

    Any immediate thoughts? She’s got just under 100,000kms and recently had a new transmission fitted at a Dealer. 2L HDi RHH engine.

    PCV/EGR valve? Turbo seal?

    She’s not running rough, power delivery is strong and fuel economy is good and consistent at 6.6L/100kms. Idles slightly high around 850rpm. No soot / residue at rear of car.

    Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    So, according to the Moss Vale guys, this is normal. That is, due to blow by, the intercooler is the first to fill up with oil vapour residue.

    Citroen and Peugeot vans suffer the most due to short/sharp trips and they push on unaffected for 300,000kms++

    Don’t bother trying to flush out the intercooler, get a replacement.

    Another brand of PSA B71 2290 for the Euro 5 engines. They all get past the turbo bearing in small quantities and accumulate in the intercooler.
