    Hi bud , I ran it for a little while but it didnt seem to clear.
    The symptoms indicate that its issues with the turbo. For oil to have got in the exhaust exit of the turbo system it will have had to leak past the main turbo oil seals. My view on it is if the seals been pressurised so it leaks then the seal wont sit snug in its original position correctly again and if it does it still wont be 100%. I think for piece of mind I want to get the turbo off and renew damaged breathers etc while im at it. Got contacts at work with turbo technics so hopefully wont cost loads for full recon and then ill know its all pukka and the system will be fingers crossed totally sound :-) . Got those nuts off now trying to remote oil andcoolant deeds etc ? :-) many thanks
