    ...the broken bits of a blown turbo going into the engine on a 2.0 TDI ?

    Got the turbo off and the bearings have completely colapsed (Will get some pics up later).

    The propelor does look complete (bit bent) but was wondering what are the chances of the debris getting into the engine if it had smashed to pieces?

    When the turbo blew, I turned the car off straight away and its not been driven/started untill the mechanic double checked it yesterday and it was running a bit rough.

    the intercooler will be drained completely, intercooler pipes cleaned out (turbo to intercooler pipe is being fitted with a new one), new oil and oil filter to make sure if there is anything into the oil, it wont get into the engine.

    Anyone got any ideas on my initial question?

    Cheers

    EDIT: Could a mod please put a "S" at the end of "chance" so it reads chances in the thread title. Thanks :D

    i can imagine the chances are quite high, all depends on the size of the debris? if it was a big piece, you may have felt/heard it, or it could have got stuck in some of the pipe work. if debris did manage to work its way in, then it could have caused a lot of damage to the valves, cylinder, piston, injectors and spark plugs. you would feel if any damage was caused to any of these components.

    As long as you haven't driven the car it should be fine. From what you described about the remains of your turbo, sound exactly what my turbo looked like when it went pop. Once the intercooler/pipes are cleaned and oil changed, you should br good to go.
