    Default Bang whistle rattle oil all over floor

    Just pulled from a junction in 2nd turbo started to kick in then heard a strange bang/pop a sort of whistle and rattling, Pulled round the corner and pulled up the car carried on running at normal idle could hear rattling then idle started to get rough as if going to stall so i turned engine off, Theres a massive puddle of oil under the car at front cannot see where its coming from there was also a lot of smoke after i turned the engine off.

    Just waiting for backup now to give me a push lol

    i'd rather it was the turbo than the engine It seems like the oil is all on the right of the engine on top of the undertray dripping through.

    Gonna get under the car today and try and find where the oil came from any pointers what to check for would be good, Might have to sell some of my vinyl to get a new engine but don't fancy going through them as i had 5000 when last counted in the late 90s

    Ok all again, Been under the car turbo oil free engine oil free the engine oil seems to have leaked from the intercooler area inbetween the fan and the radiator the bottom of the intercooler looks bowed/curved, Am i on the right tracks thinking the turbo's blown and took the intercooler out with it. Thanks for any info in advance. Thanks Tommy

    Is there any play in the turbo? I don't know what the bottom of the engine looks like off the top of my head but apart from possibly an oil cooler (if thats where it is on the 1.9) are you sure things like the sump haven't split?

    Sounds like the inter-cooler at the least!, you 'could' make sure the oil level is correct & start up to see if its blowing from the area you mentioned, its not unheard of for the inter-cooler giving way especially when flooded with oil. Its a cdti thing! (that's why my personal choice is venting to atmos to help reduce inter-cooler oil saturation).
