    Default Broken Down!!!

    Broke down earlier - AA came and towed me. Looks like the turbo has gone!

    Oil has gone and i mean gone! Chucking smoke out the back, took the pipe off the turbo and it is caked in oil!

    Fingers crossed its just the turbo and nothing else. Time to start sourcing!

    Why buy new when you can get your original overhauled.

    Cheaper by £200.00

    Right, just to follow up - Turbo sourced and replaced. all seems to be working fine. Only problem i have is that a tone of oil was pumped through the exhaust system. Iv had the whole lot off and stood it up right for a couple of days to let it drain out.
    My question is, other than letting the oil eventually burn off to stop it smoking like mad, is there anything else i can do? Anything i can flush the exhaust with from the downpipe to the tips?

    Cheers
    Rob
