    Dribbling injector, worn rings. Does it blow like a leaf blower out the oil filler cap ?

    This happened to me, and was going on unnoticed for a while and lead to my turbo blowing :-(..at first it was very subtle so easily missed- no smell etc.

    Mine was caused by worn seals both within the HPFP and within one of the injectors. Got a low mileage set put in my Stattler which cured the problem. Best not to drive the car too much till its sorted ,as your oil's not going to be doing its job properly.
