So I found this hose clamp loose under the front of my 2001 1.8T on the passenger side. There is an identical intake on the driver's side. I found oil sprayed out everywhere on the bottom of the engine:


I think that I have been running like this for a few days.

Is this the air intake for the turbo? Should I expect oil leakage given that the clamp was loose?

What should I check to make sure nothing has been damaged (the car runs fine now)? What cleaning steps should I take if any?

I also noticed some oil gunk around the plugs and oil filler that I don't think was there before.

Thanks!

It's very possible that the hose clamp has been off since last service, but the hose hasn't actually slipped off of its mouting surface until recently.

What damage should I check for or mitigate?

Starter mucked up

My starter just died. Looks like the oil spray must have gummed up my starter too.
