    intercooler on p-x

    Hey guys, took my inlet hoses off not long ago to find a fair amount of whitish oil in the intercooler.. This is a result of the oil hole on the x-charger impeller shaft right? How do i clean out the intercooler? can i just wash it out with water?

    Sounds like you have the oiler hole issue so you will need to do the fix on that. Water will not get the oil out of your cooler your best bet would be to get some gas and put it in there shake it all about and then pour out. It would prob help if you warmed the IC up abit as well coz that will make the oil thin up abit. Prob have to wash with gas a few times to get it all out. Hope that helps R88
