    Default Hi there, new member with a big problem

    Hi guys, I've got an 08 plate vectra 1.9 cdti 150 and it would appear that my turbo has blown. It initially lost power but has since started blowing out plooms of white smoke and has burnt nearly 3 litres of oil since yesterday.

    Does anyone have any of advice?

    Cheers

    Davie

    Chance your luck, vx may offer to pay part of the cost if you have a full service history.

    I bought the car with 13k on it, it got a dealer service at 33k and a non dealer service at 53k. Does anyone know how much a turbo is?

    I very much doubt they will help with that. But its worth asking as they can only say no.

    Also if its using that much oil is it dumping it into the turbo/exhaust as that will also kill the CAT.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
