    Default Major Oil Leak!

    So New turbo fitted, new oil and coolant filled, injectors unplugged to prime the turbo. Cranked the engine 3 times at intervals for around 10 seconds. Got out to have a look round and a huge puddle of oil under the car to the right hand side in the sump area.

    Being well and truly fed up i cursed a lot and threw in the towel. Any ideas what it could be?

    I will be pulling it apart again tomorrow to see what I can find.

    I'd have a gander underneath to see where the oil is coming from, should give you a clue

    Oil banjo bolt on top of the turbo or the the sump return underneath. Did you replace the gaskets?

    It'll be one of those pipes. Feet up for the night and go and look at it with fresh eyes tomorrow. Either the bolts need doing up a bit tighter or the return isn't sitting quite flush to the turbo.

    Mine's leaking too after I changed mine.

    Would be the most likely culprit, just seems like a hell of a lot of oil (at least a litre), especially after only cranking the engine 3 times.
