I had a 87 740 turbo wagon, It ran a 10.9 1/4 mile man was it fun. I hate to say that your turbo is nearing the end of its life. The only thing you can do is replace it. there are speciality shops that specilize in turbos. if you can't find one close check out a Diesel truck shop, they deal in turbos too. maybe you can have it rebuilt a little cheaper, or I can tell you how make it pass a Corvette. Good luck.

Why is oil coming out of the exhaust pipe?


If your previous turbo had leaked oil into the exhaust system there would still be oil residue left in the system. (1) The catalytic converter/converters would need to be replaced if you have one plus any O2 sensors. (2) If your muffler/mufflers are a glass packed type, replace it with a new one. If muffler is a chamber type you can clean it with a solvent or replace your call. The muffler/mufflers are were most of the oil will be pooling. (3) Clean as much of the exhaust as you can with the solvent that you used to flush the mufflers with.

Can not get a spark on my 1987 volvo 740 gle non turbo changed coil and still no spark please help thanks


check your voltage amplifier for the spark, it sits on the inside of the fender , look in your manual. If it is not grounded to the metal well it will not work right. Remove it and clean the back side, fine steel wool
does well. Or it may not be working

It amplifies the low level signal from the computer to a level that the coil can use to generate a spark

I have the benefit of having a spare one for testing.

It would not be the first one that had that problem

The other thing to check is the little coil in the distributor . It needs replacing every 100000 or so there is a spec for the resistance through it and the plate it mounts on can be loose.

Blue smoke out of exhaust, replaced turbo, still smokes a lot when engine revs


have you driven it at least 100 miles since repair?, the oil residue builds up inside the exhaust and burns off very slowly from the previous failed turbo seal.

Oil Leaking into the exhaust


hi there, there are chemicals on the market that will soften up the seals but these take time to work i would suggest changing the turbo, you will also have to remove the oil from the exhaust system this can be done with other chemicals like an upper cylinder cleaner feed directly in to the air intake but only after the turbo has be fixed

2001 Volvo S40 1.9T - oil leaking into turbo


It's very common for the turbo return line seal to leak. That is what I would check first, when it leaks, it will spray oil all over the turbo lines and the rear of the engine.
