Title: turbo
Post by: nick1983 on 17:45, Fri 09 September 2011
i posted on here on monday about white smoke. some people said it was condensation in the exhaust but it has got worse so i whipped the exhaust wlbow off and its got quite a lot of oil in it so i'm guessing that the seals are buggered.  :( any other ideas that i could be missing?

Sounds like turbo has gone to me, time for rebuild.  Has the shaft got any play in it?

no none whatsoever. dean had it rebuilt and the rear seal went straight away so i bought one of those with the extra bit and a heat shield but now it's smoking worse than ever and got oil in the exhaust.  :?

When you rebuikd a turbo you normally have to change little more then just the seals, when turbos go there tends to be more wrong with them.
It'll need properly rebuilding mate, shaft checked and ground if needs be, new bearings and seals plus checking its all balanced too as this will kill a turbo quickly too

if it has left the test station it will need a full test buddy

Really? Depends on what it failed on.

It should only need testing on what it failed on, that's how it's always worked for me in the past.

at work (im a tech) if the vehicle leave's the test station then we have to perform a full test regardless of milage because you dot know what the car has been doing since it left minor incident etc
