I know the vapor is going to atmosphere and I'm not saying that it caused the coupler to blow off.
I just found the inside of the tubing coated with an oily film.
This was the tube going to intercooler inlet.
I sprayed/cleaned it with degreaser and solvent before putting it back.
My thinking is that if the tubing is coated with oil then so is the inside of the intercooler.
When I pulled the tubing off to change my injectors, the tubing had no oil film.
