    Oil seepage around TPS/TB

    I noticed yesterday that there is oil residue around my TPS/TB. Looks like there is residue on the metal pipe below the TB as well. From what I can tell looks to be coming out of the bottom of the riveted on plastic cover.

    Any thoughts?

    My guess is the PCV lines below it might be the cause. I would clean off everything in the general area with non-chlorinated brake cleaner and see if it comes back. The only thing that could leak from that cover is a bearing for the throttleplate rod.

    In the first picture you can see the metal line below the bypass valve hose. Hard to tell from the pic, but its a little crusty and oily.
