    My 888 is diein i think

    my 888 coupe is leakin water its drippin down off at the sump i only had cam an water pump done 7k ago so i hopin it not the pump already.

    the car is also breathin heavy an spittin alot of oil into the oil breather pipe on the head is there an oil catcher or anythin to solve this

    also is now on 102k on the same turbo i was wonderin wherei can buy a rebuild kit for the k04 turbo the ones on ebay always for audis/vws etc

    any advice would be very helpful

    thanks for lookin

    Which side is the water running from mate?
    Theres a auxilery pump down the front of the block more to the passenger side though.

    Mine started leaking from the seal.

    As for the oil catcher, i would imagine if theres alot of oil in the system then the pipes into and out of the intercooler will be quite full of oil.
    But then again if your on 102k on the original turbo, then i think the turbo maybe getting towards the end of its life.
    But then that would result in alot of blue smoke being emitted from the exhaust, usually when idling or shutting off of the throttle.
