My turbo is leaking oil, is it the turbo?
Loss of power, excess smoke, high fuel consumption, overheating, high exhaust temperatures and oil leakages from the turbocharger are all symptoms that could indicate turbocharger malfunction...
However, these faults are often wrongly attributed to the turbocharger because defects in other components can produce the same symptoms.
The turbocharger performance can only be impaired by mechanical damage or blockage caused by carbonisation. Please refer to our Fault Diagnosis Chart For Turbocharged Vehicles, (opens in a popup window), which provides a comprehensive list of the most common symptoms related to turbocharger failure before replacing a turbocharger.
If after taking the appropriate action a problem(s) still persists please contact us.
