    not to sure James ....but are you letting the turbo cool down when arriving at your destination IE let the engine run for a couple of mins or so..........this helps the life of the turbo

    Blue smoke is usually from oil

    You really need to get it diagnosed to see what's what. A quick test to see if it could be the turbo is to unclip one of the boost hoses - the big one at the front would be a good one - and see if there is more than a fine misting of oil on the inside of the hose. Anything more than a fine misting is pointing towards the turbo having problems - probably the seals on it gone.

    If it does need fixed, the only place I'd recommend is Turbo Technics in Northampton. Garrett specialists and very good people to deal with.
