    Question oil consumption????

    Hi guys,

    i could do wiv some ideas.

    over the period of a few months now my coupe turbo's being drinking oil, iv being checking it on two week intervals now and each time its on the half way marker on the dipstick.

    i'v got a sneaky feeling my turbo might be popping its cloggs.

    if there`s smoke billowing out the back then it tells its own storey, if not, take of your intercooler pipe thats connected the turbo, if knackered all your oil will be stored there, easier still, check your top intercooler hose to the top hat, oil will creep upwards under pressure...HTH.

    i checked the top intercooler pipe and got a fare bit drip onto my hand when i took it off. but theres no smoke out the exhaust yet. do you reckon i should check the bottom intercooler pipe?
