Oil in the IC hose?

A little oil?  I wish I could say that!  I have oodles of oil throughout the
IC and hoses, with weeping through the endcaps, but that just means that my
turbo seal is most likely on the way out...

A little oil is perfectly normal and disintigration of the 'Michelin Man'
hose at the underside is usually due to weakening over time from the
standing oil.  Me, I KNOW I've got to have my turbo rebuilt or replaced (I
prefer the former).
