Replace the turbo and completely dry out the rest of the connecting pipes/hoses going to it. Any water/moisture in a oil cooled turbine is bad.

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: do i need a turbo timer for an intercooled diesel engin..isuzu...

Yes it pays to have a Turbo timer or let it run for 3 minutes after an outing.
An Intercooler is usually fitted to turbo charged engines.It cools the air entering the engine making it denser,Thats why cars go really well on frosty mornings after they reach running temp.
Hope this helps.

i guess you dont know that some heads are not torqued, or use TTY bolts, right? some are set by ANGLE degree.
that is covered in the FSM all that. the facts.
most head failures result from guessing.
or asking here, with no facts on car.
some engine run different heads, and different if turbo.

My 96 tt 993 is accumulating oil in the intercooler and then spiling down to the left side onto the engine, is there an easy fix to this problem?

If oil is accumulting inside the inetercooler, it means that the turbo-shaft seal is leaking causing oil to by pass in to the intake system, then through to your intercooler. A quick check to see if this is a fault, remove the hose/piping from the turbo the intercooler and place a piece of white paper over the hole at the turbo where the air is dispelled. Run the engine for a few minutes and if you notice any oil occuring/building up on the white papaer, then it is the turbo seal. This method is used on everything from jetskis to dump trucks. If no oil is present then the oil leak will be coming from somewhere else on the engine, and being sucked in through to the top of the intercooler. May have to remove it to see where any other leaks are coming from.

My volvo 940 1993 keeps flashing the emission light when I restart warm car after a short trip - slow to start, need to give it some gas & rev

Sounds like you need an O2 sensor. You need to have it scanned, places like AutoZone will do this free of charge.

I do not no the name of the pipe.

if the hose runs from the turbo housing to the intercooler or the inlet manifold it is a turbo hose
It is one piece between turbo and intercooler or inlet manifold
it suffers from heat problems so is a special silicon materila ( normally blue) and will regiure special hosw clamps to keep it on the metal fittings

No power loads of blue smoke and a rattle or jinggle while idle

from what you describe re turbo and blue smoke then you say impellor is loose?? this soundslike the tubo has failed because the oil seals have gone allowing oil loss to bearings due to entering the induction/manifold you will req a recon or new turbo and if yours is intercooled then the intercooler will req cleaning as will ind hoses when work is completed the smoke will be evident for a while due to exhaust system contamination especially catalytic ? i'm afraid these components are expensive and not really diy
