    Vehicle : cdti 150

    Trim : sri

    Engine : z19dth

    Year : 2005

    Default been to vx for diagnostics :(

    And it aint good, had it looked at vx today due to it smoking again,
    hour or so later, bad news mr lee, it's either your turbo or piston rings
    then they did handbrake recall and full inspection to tell me that i have a rear main oil leak, they want £665 for that..... not including reason why it went in, so took a drive to were i had turbo done last june ,and the owner says he's 100% sure it's not the pistons but the valve stem seals so got a quote of them for around £500+

    feelin rather peed off but has to be done.......
