Hey guys, after a nice long 250 mile trip today I notice smoke from the engine....I look under the hood and see oil sprayed on the top of the turbo area leaking down to the CV joint and the s-pipe. The oil is definitely coming from the top part of the engine. Could this be leaking from the turbo itself or somewhere else? Thanks for the help!! jerry '87 GL 4WD turbo wagon

That top fitting is the oil line. The two on the side are coolant and the bottem is the oil return. The top is the one that will spray if it leaks. Is there oil on the injectors and intake manifold? If so look at your cam seal
