    Small turbo feed line leak? (i think)

    A small amount of oil is dripping onto the turbo of my 2002 wrx. From what i've heard it's a fault of the stock hose, should I replace it or is there a way to repair it for now? Just bought this wrx about a month ago. Also, this is my first time posting so if I'm doing anything wrong I'd like to hear how to correct that.

    Looks like it's coming from the crankcase vent.

    +1, you're showing your PCV recirc, not the oil feed line. The oil feed line is a metal tube for the 2002 WRX.

    Purchase an Oil Catch Can or an Air-Oil Separator.

    The purpose of the PCV system is to transport "dirty" pressurized air from the crankcase back into the intake. Oil creeps: for this reason you see oil on the outside of the PCV valve.
