    Oil Loss

    My Gsi seems to have developed an oil loss problem.

    I cannot see any visible signs anywhere, and there is no smoke coming from the exhaust.

    The only thing I have noticed is that the turbo seems to make a noise when boosting that it never made before.

    I have had it to vauxhall and suprise suprise they say they cannot find anything wrong.

    In a month it went from full to at the bottom of the dipstick.

    Any ideas?

    It could be the seals on the compressor side of the turbo. SO you wont notice a distinct blue smoke effect, since the oil sits in the intercooler if the seals leak.

    If its sitting in the I/C, it will eventually make its way into the cylinders though.

    Take the I/C off and see if there is anything in there?
