    That first video reminds me of an old mondeo I had. It did the same thing when the oil seals went in the turbo and it started running on the oil!! I had to stall the engine every time I stopped and had to refill the oil when I got to work but it almost managed to make the 30 mile round trip for work but it couldn't quite make it up the last hill and died half way up just 50yds from home.
