<HTML><FONT FACE=arial,helvetica><FONT SIZE=2>I had precisely the same symptoms and only found the problem when I happened
<BR>to rev the motor while hunched over the engine compartment while wearing
<BR>shorts and sandals. Hmmm, a breeze by my feet every time I revved the motor.
<BR> turned out (in my case) that the lowere turbo-to-intercooler hose had
<BR>developed a tear right by the alternator which was barely noticeable save the
<BR>oily deposits (1/2"). Needless to say I replaced it and THAT problem is gone.
<BR>Recheck (best if you actually remove and inspect) all hoses, especially the
<BR>upper and lower intercooler hoses. If you don't want to go this route, at
<BR>least look for any oily film anywhere near any of the hoses. If one of the
<BR>hoses develops a hole (usually the underside where you can't see it), some
<BR>oily blow-by will tend to develop in that vicinity. Also check to make sure
<BR>all of your hose clamps are tight after inspection, otherwise the same
<BR>symptoms can occur with even perfect hoses.
