when fitting my dp's yesterday i noticed oil on the back of the drivers side cylinder head right above the turbo and there was oil on the actuator arm and braided hose on the back of the turbo not a lot at all but i couldnt see if it was just a slight weep from the head above or from the turbo but it wouldnt leak upwards would it and there wasnt oil all over like it had sprayed out under pressure.
when the turbo oil seals go what happens oil leak wise????
the shafts were rock solid and span freely and i dont get any smoke from the exhaust, the garage i use mentioned a small oil leak a few months back from the engine and didnt mention a turbo oil leak so i'm hoping its just the rocker gasket weeping, how long do it take a turbo to die with buggered oil seals? or what other signs would i have?
