    Vehicle : Vectra c SRI Facelift

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2006

    Default intercooler?

    Hey Guys,
    i noticed a couple of small oil patches uner my Facelift 1.9 150 a few weeks ago but havnt been able to find the source.Ive looked again today and have noticed that there is oil working its way along the belly pan and dripping from the "inspection" panel on the belly pan.

    This along with the car smoking under hard acceloration and low revs im guessing its the intercooler? today ive also noticed that there is a hissing sound comming from the front of the car

    Apart fron the intercooler what else could it be?

    I must admit i havnt got under the car as i have been working my nuts off and due to finishing work at 10pm its too dark

    Thanks

    Blown intercooler or burst pipe, possibly even just a jubilee clip that's came loose.

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    If its leaking that much. I'd suspecting more problems than just intercooler.

    oil residue in intercooler an connecting pipe work it ok. More than that and your looking at turbo oil seals.

    which will need looking at. As their a chance the engine can run on from that much oil inlet side.

    ideally you need to get up off the floor and get the tray off. Clean the oil mess off and then run car up an view where excactly oil is coming from
