    Yes. In 1985 or 6 I put a new turbo on a company truck. It had oil dripping out the flex pipe behind the turbo idling in the shop. No driver complaint just there for service. A lot of times then I just did what I was told. It still dripped oil out the exhaust with the new turbo.
    That company only replaced filters when the filter minder said it was needed and it said good. I pulled the air filter. It had about 4 inches of trash in the bottom of the can and a dead bird. New filter and it quit dripping oil. That is why I mentioned it. Do inexpensive stuff first if you are not sure.
