    turbo gone symtoms

    hi all, my dad as a coupe turbo and he ses he had blue smoke yesterday after a quick blast literally prob wasnt even driven to hard ( as my dad is useless ha ha knowing him) so he txt me last nite syaing this..


    so this morning i did a few litle checks..as i was at gf's and cudnt check the car yesterday..


    1. i started the car to see if any smoke on idle a left the car for 25min!!

    heres a video...( he has condensation water dripping from exhaust so to me it doesnt luk anything like the blue i have seen when a turbo as gone..the car was just over 0 on temp gauge at the point of this video)



    2.its boostin correct overboost at 10psi hold around 8psi and keeps up pulls well. ive never seen any smoke from his car at all..

    3. not alot of oil in pipes..just a tiny bit but am led to believe this is ok as it will have a little..also as my dad doesnt drive the car hard he cud poss have more than usual? but ther is only a tad anyway..

    any how see what u think but to me i think it luks ok...and to ease is mind am thinking just put a oil restrictor on is turbo and see how it goes from there really..

    also his car has covered 54k.....just had service and cambelt and waterpump..always warmed up and cooled down before driving hard and ending journey if he has give it a bit..( prob rarly lol)
