Turbo issue ???

Post by Huddsy » Thu Jan 28, 2021 9:29 am

Good morning all
My wife’s car has a small habit of kicking out oil onto the exhaust which causes smoke and a nasty smell which in nerves her obviously
It can happen once every few weeks but the car is used daily
As said it doesn’t do it often and it’s never been a troublesome vehicle in any way tbh
The car has just been fully serviced (sometime a couple of months late but was doing it just prior to the service too)
It appears to be coming from the top of the engine around the turbo area
She took it to a garage (well known locally) and they have said it needs a replacement turbo at a cost of £1900+
The oil level is spot on so it’s appearing to not disperse much oil I was wondering if a new turbo is the answer to the problem or if there is anything else to look out for
She did say the garage didn’t look particularly interested in sorting the issue and seemed to not want to be involved which makes me wonder if they just threw a “cover all”quote at her

Thanks in advance
