got what looks like soot on my turbo ?
any help ideas please ?
I cant think how soot would get there unless either the exhaust side of the turbo is cracked or leaking
EGR pipe above it leaking/cracked?
I had that its due to egr return pipe leaking blacked it with darkside egr delete kit all sorted, wipe it down but dont hit actuator be gentle nd get blanking plate installed on manifold
cool will order part my egr is already blanked of but will put new part on.
isn't the egr location on the manifold quiet far from the turbo to do that ?
just done 700 miles to paris and back for the weekend come home and thought id the turbo and found this
New gasket needed? Not tightened enough? Possibly the blank plate is too far from flat for the gasket to do its job?
At least you've found what looks like the cause!
