    help me for trax tmo!

    right.... blue smoke out of the exhuast when turbo kicks in, oil in the airbox from the breather pipe to the 2.2 box from the rocker cover. oil burining off the turbo and had oil smoke coming through the heater vents so this means to me too much oil, but the dipstick doesnt show this!!!

    its doing my ****ing head in

    when i say oil in the bottom of the airbox, i mean shit loads, so much it comes out of the air intake and the filter is soaked. the dipstick looks like its on the minimum level to me

    yeah id say your turbo seals are gone. get a new turbo asap before you cause damage to the bottom end.
