Check hose that runs from intake manifold to compressor for oil residue if you do then you might have a bad turbo

weird how dirt is getting in?but it sounds like the compressor is bad,id check the air filter system to make sure its sealed good after the filter element

Had a Coolpower that you drained sludge every day from it. Fitters put a new compressor on her and no more sludge ! Hope this helps mate
