    Question Oil in the water system!

    Hi

    I have a 2001 1.7 tdi astra van.

    Does anyone have any idea why oil would be getting into the water system? Could it be possibly be because the turbo is on its way out?

    Thanks RDMA

    Oil is also coming out of the dump valve! I also have watery oil leaking out of the intercooler pipe!

    DTis have a water cooled turbo, so it's almost certainly the seals in the turbo that are gone. Although, some oil in the IC can happen on otherwise healthy engines.
