    1litre of oil - 500miles

    Everytime i get sorted with the car, something else comes up.

    Some of you may know my turbo went, so had it rebuilt. At the same time i had the headgasket done and also stem valve oil seals.

    Now the car isnt smoking, but im going through about a litre of oil every 500-600 miles.

    Now is this normal as the car has 78k miles, or what should i be looking at get done next

    Thats worse on oil then mine with a knackered turbo

    You sure there isnt a leak, stupid i know... but could be leaking anywhere. did you refit the turbo your self?
