    Default Turbo

    Hi I had the exhaust flexi pipe section changed at the weekend as it was blowing badly, my brother did it for me as he is a bus mechanic, as it was in the air on the lift and the flexi was still off he spotted that the turbo had a bit of oil on the underneath.. what could this be? I have vectra estate 1.9cdti (120)
    Thanks

    This is something I am interested in too as I have a similar thing, is it possible for the turbo to leak oil, I know they can leak it into the intake but can they leak externally and if they can is there a seal kit available?

    Are you sure its oil coming from the turbo and not a leak from around/above it that is just ending up on the turbo - how much oil is there - is it leaving a pool on the driveway when parked - if only a small amount I wouldn't worry too much

    Now my undershield is off it leaves oil stains on the drive.

    The turbo is suppost to whistle whilst accelerating so yes you do hear it whistle while changing gears.
