    Bummer, it looks like your turbo oil seals have gone, passing the turbo lube oil straight into the inlet system/cylinders and running untill all the oil has drained through the seals, your lucky the engine didnt blow up "unless that was what all the smoke was?" all the inlet system will be full of oil and turbo blown at a minimum if your lucky "not sure if thats the correct term" I have only seen this happening once before and that engine chucked its rods out of the block with guff all over the floor.
    Hope for your sake thats not happened. No idea on cost but ebay may have what you want £150-350 for a turbo??

    Mine has been whistling for a year now but having just spent a load of cash on the DMF and new steering rack (both had failed) I am just waiting for it to let go. I have been told it shouldn't cause too many problems when it does give up so I might as well get as many miles out of it as i can. There is no loss of power yet. 1.9 cdti 16v.

    didnt think the 2.0dti would have the power to pull a caravan, i wouldnt use mine to pull one

    i was told by a garage when i brought my vectra the reason for the turbos going is because people dont change the oil is that true?
