Fault in engine+turbo diesel+LOSING OIL

The oil had to be topped up every week, but no obvious fault could be detected. Now it looks as if the engine, already replaced with a re-conditioned engine 3 years ago, will have to be replaced again.

Hello, i have recently purchase an 85 vanagon westfalia, with a 93 turbo diesel toyota engine, and it does not fit, so some modifications were made, such as the matress on top of the engine on the back had to be cut ,, its like a big square, its not that bad, i can still put a thin matress on top of that square and its just not as soft,,, but my real problem is that i still have the same 4 gear vw transmition, so i am now in the quest of a vw golf 5 gear transmition that would fit , my other option was a subaru transmition ,, but it was kind of expensive, if anyone reading this know of other options please let me know ,, also i was told that i have to change the radiator & fan for a bigger one and also see a way to install some sort of fan right next to the engine on the back,, since diesel engines run hotter,, i am not really a gear head ,, dont know much about this things.... any comments or recommendations?

SOURCE: Engine oil get less every two weeks in my pajero 4m40

Diesels do lose a little oil out the blow-by tube. If the engine temp. is higher then normal then you will lose more then normal amounts. If you are not leaking it then you are burning it, Possibly worn rings, head-gasket, or oil leak inside turbo. 68 MPH and higher doesn't sound unusual, is the engine still stock?

SOURCE: mazda 6 2o diesel replaced turbo new unit same

There is a oil drain return from the turbo charger to the sump. If the sump oil level covers the outlet into the sump, oil will build excess pressure tin the turbo causing the sealing rings to leak oil in to the intake manifold. This would cause smokey exhaust and loss of oil. Try this. Drain the sump completely, refill with the exact quantity of oil to Mazda spec. Dip the oil and if the new oil level is lower than the full mark on the dipstick, you have found the cause of the problem. Mark this new level with a scriber or file and fill only to this new level. Hope this is the solution.

If it is turbocharged, Diesel engine , check on turbo charger leakage of oil, generally or mostly when engine needs to be overhaul , most probable cause of it is wear on piston ring and cylinder line, shows u hard starting loose in power b/c of lose in compression. Further write detail on the condition of your car and type of it like diesel or gasoline.

Jaguar x 2.0 Diesel Problem no power alot of black smoke coming out as you drive , now i have oil on rad and all over battery

run fault codes and look for EGR valve and pcv valve faults. Black smoke is unburnt diesel so it may be the injectors need attention. If it is a turbo then check the oil lines to the turbo and check turbo operation as it may not be producing air pressure for the engine.

Open hood,look everywhere,if not at top of motor,get under vehicle and look and you should see and follow,if you need to get a mirror for a better view.Check by oil filter,oil pressure switch,valve cover.rear oil seal.If no leaking,then maybe it's burning oil,any smoke.

right three squirts of fairy liquid and yes it musat be fairy and not the thin cheap one into the oil,then a pint of diesel poured in as well and run vehicle for a week ,drain oil and then refill with a diesel turbo oil cheapest you can get from supermarket ,and repeat the performance leave for a week or two becaue by this time the cam follower should have cleared itself a bit and the oil pressure should make it start adjusting ,Then after a few weeks change the oil again and the oil filter ,then forever after change oil every 6000miles with the diuesel turbo oil and oil filter every third oil change ,Do not use wynns or stp additives or fancy oils that claim a long life just a cheap diesel turbo oil and the inside of the engine will stay clean and the tappets will always adjust themselves .Their now isnt that simple compared to some motoring mags advice which are written by people that dont know the meaning black grime under fingernails ,just advertisers revenue that they write nice stories for
