    Default BLOWN TURBO ? 2.2 dti

    sodds law....just about to put the car up for sale & i think my turbo has bitten the dust?.
    i am off to my local garage tonight,but just in case they are way off....any ideas??
    symptoms;
    motorway..60mph cruising...not a sign of smoke.....hard acceleration...loads of smoke..gentle acceleration...not as bad......
    hard revving on the drive.....loads of smoke!
    recently,i have had a little smoke out upon starting,which i guess now may be down to my turbo oil seals on the way out??
    engine sounds fine!

    help?
    if it is the turbo....any ideas on cost?
    many thanks
    nev.

    My mates turbo went recently once he got to 60mph the engine would lose all power,
    he had to take it out of gear, switch off the ignition, and restart the car, before it would go again

    Have you checked the boost pipes for holes?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Yep, check the intercooler and boost hoses before you condemn the turbo.

    If it smokes like a bonfire when you just free rev it, I wouldn't have thought that it is the turbo on it's way south, especially as you say that there is no drop in power.

    Have you tried injector cleaner in the fuel?? Worth a try for about £5. My mates Mazda 626 Diesel was smoking the same as you describe, he put some in - - - smoke no more.
