156 1.9JTD split air hose - blows oil

Yesterday I opened my hood to find quite a lot of oil/dark sludge sticking to the underside of my hood.

I quickly found the source: a split air hose.

I repaired the airhose with a piece of heat-shrink tubing with glue, this seems to work very well.

however, why is there oil/dark sludge in my air hose? is this normal?
I attached a picture(not very good quality) to clarify my question. the yellow arrow is where the oil seems to come from
