1.9JTDm Oil in turbo inlet.

Hi, had a lack of power recently, increase in fuel use and found the inlet pipe to the turbo loose. Once I removed it to clean and refit I noticed a thin film of oil over the inlet area of the turbo.
Does anyone else have any experiences or is the turbo on it's was?

I ve had 3 Fiats and 3 Alfas with Fiat Group turbo diesel engines-ALL had oil in the turbo pipes-its a standard feature!

Yep, it's not a bug, it's feature.

It is when the car starts smoking when left idling for 10-15 mins you need to worry.
