    Default Is there some sort of cure for a weeping turbo?

    My turbo seems to have a slight oil drip. It's obvious it's just oil vapour that is accumulating but it's accumulating on the intake side meaning oily pipes, oily intercooler, and more annoyingly and oily inlet manifold (just great when the car deposits it's exhaust gasses in there )

    Fed up with the sludge and don't want to have to keep taking the inlet manifold off and soak it in diesel every year.

    Would using a thicker oil help or is the best bet a new turbo? (if it's gonna come to that I will probably just stick with removing the manifold every year )

    2.2dti by the way and I know how the systems all work, just want to know if anyone else has changed the turbo and the problems gone

    Oily film on intercooler and intake hoses is quite normal, even when the car is new!

    Consider using a thicker oil anyway if your car has some miles on it (70-80,000 plus).

    See also thread about 'oil catch can' to find out where other oil comes from.

    Been thinking of using different oil tbh, The car has done 99k and is running 0w40 Mobil 1 Supersynth and although there is no blue smoke (not even a trace) and it doesn't use oil, it really is starting to sound rather tractory.

    Right from looking at that thread half of the problem may be the turbo and the outher half oil vapour from the engine, gonna buy myself one of these catch tanks I think

    John,

    The only 100% solution on the catch can idea is sadly an expensive one as it is either the Mann Hummel Provent 100 or 200 or Racor CCV6000 both about £150 but both are a 100% removal of oil solution.

    TBH even a 50% removal would do me. Just fed up with the inlet clogging up so much

    Look at the alloy ones on the bay, try to get a 1 litre capacity fill it with brass wool and it will do a decent job. I planned to mount mine on the firewall near the fuel filter (fwiw)
