    Default 2.2dti oil around turbo area

    Hi This is my first post on here been looking through some of the posts using the search feature some very useful info its already helped me fix my stuck boot lid switch.

    Any way i bought a 53 reg signum 2.2dti with 121k on the clock at a car auction the other night i got it for £1100.

    i will be using it for work travelling about 500 miles a week.

    a few years ago i had a Y reg 2.2dti sri 130bhp well on the way home i noticed that the signum is not as quick and feels very flat and not much turbo boost.

    when i got it home and gave the car a good going over the turbo is covered in thick black oil engine oil looks like it has been over filled with oil as it is right up the indicator on the dip stick i was wondering if this could of blew the oil seals on the turbo is this possible.

    car seams to drive ok just not very quick no smoke when i but my foot down.

    So do you guys think my turbo is on its last legs.

    i can take some pics tomorrow if anyone is interested to see

    cheers guys hope you can help

    If its been over filled, it can affect thew performance of the engine, drain the oil out and refresh to correct level.

    Also check boost pipes, clean EGR etc if it has one.

    Probably just caked up and needs a good service.
