Default Turbo Oil Feed and Drain

Hi all, first post here, and new PT owner..

Just picked up a 2003 GT, the oil feed line looks to be leaking a fair amount of oil, I was curious if there are any suggested aftermarket kits? Or should I replace with stock? I plan on replacing both fittings and tube for the send, I think the return is fine.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks. looks like the previous owner did a few things on the vehicle, not sure what exactly he was doing but im trying to clean it up and get it running 100% again..

needs a few things fixed.. but my main concern is that oil leaking, and some suspension issues though.

can someone explain to me why when someone says "hi I'm new and I have a question", 8 people say "welcome to the forum" and nobody answers the question? is it so this guy will fall in love with the friendly people here, go start a new member intro thread, post a bunch of pictures, etc and drag the process of ordering parts to fix an oil leak out until Saturday so that anything he orders to fix his leak will sit in the post office until Monday and maybe make it to him by the end of next week, meanwhile he's smelling oil and staining his driveway, thinking of all the friendly people here?

I don't have a turbo, so I CANT answer your question, or I would. so i'll just say

I agree with you, Rob. It's weird to me too. I DO have a turbo, but can't help either as I haven't had that problem.

Well Rob I'll take a swing. You can buy a replacement hose on eBay. About $30. If you see crusty stuff in the turbo end. You should check the turbo for side movement. If you can push the impeller and make it touch the side. You should rebuild it. The hose is the hardy part to me. I think I covered that in the sticky rebuilding the turbo. If not there it's in my project thread.

I guess the reason I may welcome someone is because I likely see it's their first post and even if I may not be able to offer a solution to their problem, I do feel some empathy to their situation.

Maybe CREWZIN should have a requirement that no new members can post to any other part of the forum until they create their first post in the New Members section, to get introductions out of the way, then they can move to their real reason for joining the forum.

And I can relate to that, I don't remember creating a thread in the New Members section when I joined.

"Welcome to the Forum "
WELCOME TO THE FORUM DERP DERP

this is exactly why I never waste time like this contributing nothing. 8 people posting the exact same sentence in a row is the standard fare around here.

in fact, over 4,920 results return from google site search for the phrase 'welcome to the forum' on ptcruiserlinks.

it's like a zombie apocalypse, except not repeating 'brains'. unless i can help, or the person deserves to be helped (rarely happens) I will reply to a thread.
