    plz help smoking problem

    Ok i bought the car about six months ago and about two months ago it started smoking on over run ... So i was told stem seals?
    I preasure tested it and they wer all 150 which is ok because i was told it would be rings.

    So i took the head off and changed the stem seals and grained all valves.... the car seamed ok then after a week i noticed it smoking abit .... Now it smokes alot on boost or if u just give it a rev when stood still u can smell oil when driving or stood still what will this be?

    I took the boost pipes of and there was oil in there , so i preasure tested it again and it had gone up to 160 so it can't be the rings no ???

    So tonight i took the down pipe off and can feel play in the turbo (up and down, and in and out) does that mean the turbo has gone?

    I don't know mate thats why im asking,

    Apparently there is a small amount of play in all new turbo's (up and down) but im sure mine has slight play in and out!

    P.S My car is a 2003 astra GSI fitted with a VXR turbo!

    I have already stripped alot of my car...AGAIN! i will remove the turbo tommorow night and send it away for a re-con.

    I was told by vauxhall that the turbo was new 10,000 miles ago when i bought it. i have only done about 5000 miles max since ive owned it. The joys of a performance car i supose

    Thanks for your help

    yep new turbo time mate but id charge vauxhall for it seeing as they replaced i would have said it comes with a guarantee for 12 months so see if you can get a new vxr unit out of it.
