    Normally, there is a little fluctation during engine warmup, but once the engine is warmed up, it should be rock steady. That's been my experience with modern cars (nonEB). Any recent service? I would check for vacuum leaks first.

    Don't worry, it always does that at cold start but nothing wrong at all! Mine has a little bounce to hit, but if you listen to the engine it's not missing or revving up & down, etc - just a little excitement in that needle wanting to Red Line and get moving - like a dog wagging it's tail wanting to go on a run!!! :burnout:

    There is no dipstick, you can use the engine oil dipstick to check, take the CAC to throttle body pipe off at the CAC. If you don't see any accumulation, check again with the driver side of the car raised up to make sure that it is not pooling on the other side of the intercooler.

    CAC = Charge Air Cooler
