    During the routine check under the hood for fluid levels I found this oil mark covered with fine dust on the turbo charger. Is it normal? What shall I do?

    I am attaching the snaps for better understanding.

    The snaps were clicked after I cleaned the cake like dust accumulated on that particular place(in the process pierced the skin on the finger also!).

    Please, post your suggestions on the further course of action to take.

    Please observe the encircled area in the photo. Actually it is the first pic. in the above ones. others was posted to locate the place more easily. As and when I found oil covered with dust immediately I cleaned then got the idea of clicking it for posting here. That is why it is not clearly visible else you would have easily found the traces of oil covered with dust.

    That pipe is the oil feed to the turbo.

    Don't give it much thought. There would be a cause for concern only if the entire turbo is drenched and dripping in oil.

    Cheers.

    So, the oil to the turbo bearing is feed through this pipe, is it?

    Anyways, is there any link to this for excess engine oil fill?

    No performance issues.

    Side Note:- Recently, during a long drive I felt a minor loss of power, after the trip removed the air filter and cleaned it with compressed air. Air was directed on the opposite direction of flow of direction of air in the air filter. Lots of dust came out. After that the vehicle is as usual.:cool:

    Before posting the problem I had a concern regarding what is it but after seeing the replies from guru and bhai, I am bit relaxed now. Thank you for such encouraging words.
