Renault 5 GT Turbo / Turbo Problems
« on: 15:15, Sun 21 February 2010 »
i fitted my new turbo last sunday brought online, and it was puffing out a bit of smoke, when first started.  i didn't think much of it at the time as i thought it may have been old oil that had been sitting in the exhurst from where the old turbo shit itself and done the oil seal, any way i have done less than 50 miles on it and today going shopping in crawley, i lost all oil pressure and clouds of smoke was pooring out of the exhurst and in the car, now my engine is or sounds like its knocking, and oil was just pooring out the exhurst not even burned.

can i claim aginst the company i brought it for damages ? and if i had to spin the turbo round to get it all to line up willthey use this against me to avoid exchangingthe unit ?

Not really done anything to it a part from fit the T28 still need to fit the alloy rad, and oil cooler, and have it set up again.

My t25 packed up the other week and started smoking, there was no play in the shaft but signs of oil leaking out the bottom of the turbo.  So i won a standard R5 T2 turbo on Ebay this week fitted it today and my oil pressure guage dosn't seem to work now.  So i just done oil and filter change and this hasn't mad a difference ether.

Also my R5 has been setup on the rolling road and everything has been uprated to run 19psi, but now with the standard T2 it tooks over at 1600rpm and its only boosting at 9psi as i havent changed adjusted the actuator yet.

My spec is fully rebuilt carb to run 25psi
staged two t25 turbo at the mo a t2 untill i get it repaired
rebuilt engine
alloy top hat
2.5 down pipe
ful s/s ex
full samco hoses
full rolling road setup
uprated fuel pump
uprated leads
alloy rad
oil cooler

I just brought myself another Renault 5GT after 8 years of selling my origanal phase 1 gt. Then i had a mk1 Uno Turbo and since then had many other cars, but last week i was looking at my pictures of my old cars, and decided to try and find another hot hatch at a good price, and stumbled across a R5 GT 1988 tung grey and thats the story so far.
