View Full Version : Oil in air intake
when i was fitting my induction kit at the weekend i noticed some oil in the air intake pipe dose this mean my turbo is knackerd and how serious is it?
how much oil mate
nah means nothing...theres an oil breathing pipe connected to a black mushroom thing, which sits in the intake pipe. so unless it was alot i wouldnt worry
quit alot not enough to be dripping out though
sounds like a smear,like said the breather will carry oil vapour and it will settle on air intake.if all is well dont worry,excessive smoke or oil consumption??
a little oil or closer to below??
that looks worrying..... is that coming out of ur turbo?, if so could be shaft bearings on the turbo shagged:(
dosent smoke and it dosent loose any oil so must be ok then cheers guys!!:D
oil seal rick.
hardly worth reconning its in the turbos nature to loose a little bit,its when it appears as smoke out of the tailpipe you have issues.
mine is dry but doesnt make it any better than a weaper
lol smoke? the boyracer behind me had to put his window wipers on when mine went.
blimey never seen one BLOW UP before lol,hope it was a saxo
306 dturbo, white...and brown stripes!
The car was still running but the blue smoke was rediculous, by the time i pulled over and turned the engine off all lanes of the m1 (belfast) were totally obscured, cars had to crawl past and i think mr 306 learned his tailgating lesson.
good cos i hate tailgaiters,i slow right down to 20 mph in towns etc
i also had some oil in my air pipes from the intercooler.. Nothing like above though :s
I remember forge cleaning the old intercooler pipes off when fitting the new one, they didnt mention anything being wrong so im not worried :)
