I have 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo with 140K miles on it. I noticed the other day that there is oil running down the exhaust side of the motor. Haven't gotten the car on a lift yet but it looks like it is coming from the turbo or the exhaust manifold. There is also a slight smell of burning oil on start up.

The car has had the recall on the ECU done about 30K miles ago and it currently has no issues with boost or drivability that I can determine. There are also no leaks on the valve cover gaskets. Hopefully I caught what ever it is before too much damage can be done.

My question is what do I need to expect to find when it is inspected on Friday? I have feeling it is the turbo letting go. If it is the turbo, what will be the cost to replace it and what other items might need to be replaced with it?

Usually will be a gasket leak which is a cheap fix. Turbo replacement would be around 1k.

it may not be from turbo, maybe valve cover leak...

Yeah, clean the engine and take note. Start from the top.
