  • Smoke Problem

    some reek when car is on idle, but when driving through the gears its fine. seems to be using a bit of oil aswell. had this problem before with an astra 03 plate gsi turbo & it was steam seals but i dont know if it is this time because the top hat seems to have oil seeping from somewhere? the turbo is boosting fine & theres no faults. any suggestions or ideas to find out the problem?

      Just had the same problem with a corsa turbo. Take the intercooler pipes off and see if there is oil in the hoses. The turbo was dumping the oil in to the inter cooler. It would only smoke at idle not when driving even when driving it hard. Its unlikely to be the stem seals unless its been cooked recently etc.

        the only thing i can think of is your turbo oil return pipe might be leaking! also i would get a catch can fitted

          Its most likely turbo oil seals. Maybe a refurb on new turbo in order.
