If it ain't one thing, its another...

Recommended Posts

Alright, working on the whole "heater core" project and I had to remove some other misc. parts I deemed for removal to get to the relevant parts. One of them being the turbo downpipe to the intercooler. Upon inspection, I found very dark oil residue. It has a sheen to it. Its not heavy, but it covers the inside so much that its black.I'm not sure if this means my turbo is shot, or if the K&N filter that used to be in it was the culprit. I can only think of cleaning the downpipe and driving it for a while and then take a look at it again to see if there is a presence of oil or not to figure out whether or not my turbo needs rebuilt.If I do need to rebuild it, where can I get the rebuild kit? I tried calling around and only got off the phone with confusion and laughter... :cookoo:It'd be nice to make this as an excuse for a bigger turbo... :drool:

I feel your pain, its always one thing or another.:cry: I got a steering box braceput on and on the test drive my temp gauge starts jumping around again. While fighting that, today my convertor starts its lock, unlock BS and its worse than ever. Got some new battery cables made today and hopefully it will fix that problem but another will come up tomorrow.:banghead:

I would think you have the oil seal that is leaking. Could be just the seal but could be shaft wear plus the seal. I used this shop to get parts and to upgrade my turbo to the HX35/40 hybrid. They were very reasonable and provided me with great service. http://gpopshop.com/

Can't speak for any of those specific suppliers but the first and last ones listed have a bigger list of items included in the rebuil kit than the middle two suppliers.I would read some of the feedback and probably select the one with the best customer score.
