    Default Turbo gone it seems.........

    Afternoon gents, I posted a few days back about a noise, possibly turbo related. I tried a few suggestions to no avail but it was since suggested by someone in the know to check the pipe/tube going to the intercooler from turbo for oil and ANY play in the shaft. Had a look today and sure enough there is a small ammount of oil, (a fingerful), seeping from the inside/bottom of the turbo housing and I can just feel a little play in the shaft too. I have just had the clutch/flywheel done at a cost of £1450 and now this..........

    Can anyone advise on where to get a good price, (I don't want to go the secondhand route), and what your ideas about driving it in the meantime are. The car isn't producing any exess smoke, the performance is as you would expect and the fuel economy is fine too. I really cannot do without the car and may be able to get a unit fitted by my brother-in-law next weekend. Incidentally Vauxhall want approx 2K to supply/fit, the best price i've found so far is from Turbo Dymamics @ £678 + vat.

    Any ideas on this please......?

    Turbo technics maybe able to offer a service exchange unit cheaper than that. But if its only a small amount of play and your skint, you could leave it to destroy itself and accept the risks that go with it. All the turbo cars I have owned have weeped a little oil through the seals. There is also going to be some play due to the clearance between the shaft and the brearings. As long as the fins are not touching the housing, i'd risk it and keep a close eye on it.

    The choice is yours in the end. hth
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    It does help a little in as much as it's been making a noise for a while but once you confirm something like that it plays on your mind, (does me)!......I drive about 2300 miles a month as the car is used for my business, i'm driving it now awaiting a 'bang' , and have been told the car can rev at full throttle without warning if it goes and can't be turned of with the key, apparently you have to stall it?? It's something i'll have to get fixed quickly but i'd need to drive it for another week or 5-600 miles approx' atleast.

    Not really....I have just paid £1450 for a clutch/flywheel and feel i'd lose way too much....between the devil and the deep blue sea I reckon. My hope is get this sorted and keep it for a while, I had thought of chopping it in before the clutch was done and wish I had now!
