    Turbo Help!!!

    My z20let is blowing blue smoke, so i took the pipe off the turbo (turbo to intercooler pipe) and there is oil in the pipe, but there is no oil in the exhaust, is this definately the oil seal? before i go buying another turbo??

    Clean all the pipes out, and drive it for a while.... it takes about 1 drop of oil to make a huge amount of smoke....... clean it out and burn off the oil in the turbo etc before you splash out.

    Thanks for your replys, i was thinking of giving it a good run first to se if it clears, because at one stage when i picked it up it was on its side in the back of my van.
