    Default Replacement turbo oil leak from return pipe

    So after being run up many times to ensure no leaks from anything after a lot of various jobs done on my car the garage will need it in again for a day next week as they just found a small weep of oil near the oil return pipe.
    Anyone have any advice about this as I've read a few times people putting new turbos on with all new parts like I have then it leaking. Previous to this even the garage agreed there should be no leaks as everything is brand new. They said it almost like it's coming from a join on the actual pipe itself which is odd.
    They have already checked all the bolts and doesn't look like it's coming from the brand new gaskets either.
    How did you guys solve your new turbo oil leaks?

    Thanks, it's not had new bolts as bolts don't wear out or affect clamping yes it's tight the garage are upset as everything's been done to ensure a clean seal.
    Ill mention using sealant when I pick it up as the new gaskets came with 2 rather than 1 which is lucky.

    Did the garage use the cr@ppy paper gaskets or a genuine one with the copper washer?

    All gaskets used on this are genuine Vx parts. The 2 gaskets for the oil return are just that no copper washers in that area only the supply side. That's unless I interpreted the parts diagram very wrongly any consumable that seals was replaced to avoid such an issue as this. The gasket from Vx that seals the pipe to turbo looked very paper like

    Oil return from the sump is paper gasket, I had to add sealant to mine... Used new bolts for piece of mind when doing them up tight.



    Oil feed has copper washers, again I used new washers with new bolt...



    Think the gasket to the right was oil feed to the turbo, again I used sealant with the new gasket...

    Cheers it's banjos both ends of the feed as its high pressure and gaskets both ends of the return. The first in your pic has a kind of coating it's the smaller one that fits on the turbo that's papery

    If it's leaking between the underside of the turbo and the oil return pipe, the genuine Vauxhall gasket has a copper washer within the gasket.
    Thats where mine is leaking from presently. I have a genuine gasket waiting to be fitted. I'll get a pic and the part number in a few minutes.
