    Default 19cdti turbo's

    Hi all..

    As many know, my old man runs an 05 19cdti 150..and yesterday it scared the heck out of him..

    Driving at 30 mph he thought' someones putting out a lot of smoke'..But it was him!! .. blue oil smoke trailed him up the road for some distance..as far as he could see..

    Now experience tells me that this is a turbo problem..But on the re-start it ran clear,Having blown out increasing smoke whenever it was revved..It still refuses to smoke..I've had it since and it's fine..

    So, before it goes to the dealer for a check has anyone else had a prob with the turbo..It's only done 12K..

    And i want my GSi back before he gets too attached to the power..

    Sounds like a sticking actuator mate. Or a faulty turbo.

    If its at night and in the car behinds lights, its normal, I had this issue yrs ago, I got my mate to drive while I followed him planting it, and nothing was coming out of it, but he said in the mirror it looked like he was covering me.

    The new CDTi's were a joint venture built by GM powertrain. Bottom line Vauxhall and Fiat as Nutron has said.

    Saab, and Alpha Romeo got these as well.
