SOURCE: leaking oil from oil cap

The problem is there is to much crank case pressure, make sure the PCV ( positive crankcase ventalation) valve is working correctly.

SOURCE: High oil Consumption, BMW M5

Look for Castrol TWS 10W60 Motor Oil. This car should not burn so much oil, you need to use a different kind. It is recommended by BMW as well. I also heard the VANOS isnt an issue anymore, can be fixed with a different MAFF. Good luck!

Yes, you have to do this and yes it is a pin, would highly reccommend taking this to a ASE certified local mechanic who speciallizes in AUDI NOT a dealership

need a look but obvious check oil level first as if too high it could be burning the oil ,secondly remove the turbo air pipe pressure side and check for oil in the pipe ,if full of oil then seal in turbo leaking and engine running on the oil .these problems will show when engine is turned off and it keeps going ,if it turns off with key then change the throttle pedal inside the car .

Hi Geoff, The symptoms you describe certainly point to the turbo. The turbo is basically an air compressor. It is operated by spinning a turbine with the hot exhaust gas which is joined to an impeller via a shaft. The shaft runs on a special floating bearing which is lubricated with pressurised engine oil. There are two special oil seals sealing that central shaft section from the impeller and turbine chambers. If either is leaking, oil will leak into the combustion chambers and result in excessive smoke. I do not know if repair kits are available where you reside, they are not available here and special seals are required. You may need to replace the unit with a reconditioned or a new replacement. Regards John

I recently purchase a 2004 XC90 with over 200k miles. When attempting to change the oil (a long story) I noticed that the rubber hose connecting the hard plastic air intake(?) that crosses over the top...


This is the turbo air cooler hose and most of them have some oil in them from the turbo. i would replace the hose and keep an eye on it, the problem may be a worn turbo. the turbo is sucking in oil, the turbo may need replacing but i would nt replace it right now, just replace the hose and keep an eye on the engine oil level, if the turbo is working and the engine is not using oil and you dont see smoke coming from the exhaust system when accelerating then just replace the hose for now, hope this helps.

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 04 VW Jetta blew thick white smoke from tailpipe after freeway drive. No indicator lights came on, all oil leaked out (after smoke started)... is this engine or could it be just the turbos? Right...


A new turbo charger is about $340, but you can buy the bearings and seals and rebuilt if yourself for about $100

It is not hard, and it does not take long to do.

I normally do not bother with synthetic, but with a turbo charger, it might be worth it. What really seems to ruin turbo chargers the most is not letting them cool off before parking.
Once you turn off the engine, there is no longer any cooling, so the build up heat will burn up the oil and seals.
Run the engine for at least 5 minutes below turbo levels, before shutting down the engine.

I have a 1992 F-350 7.3l diesel truck and it smokes real bad


How many miles on the truck? Replace the air filter.Check all aftercooler lines for air leaks.Check your turbo to be sure the seal is not leaking causing the engine to **** oil thru the turbo. You may need to clean the fuel system.Add 32 oz of Power Service 911 to your fuel. If none of this helps and you have a high mileage truck it may be time to replace the injectors

2004 VW Jett Turbo / Oil Light Blinks and making an alarm sound


you've either got low engine oil, or the sensor has gone bad, or you have a leak somewhere. The leak may not be visible if it's leaking into another part of your engine or into the transmission via the rear engine seal

Oil Leak on Ford F-550 1999


if your not having problems with the vehicle missing the injectors are fine. if your getting alot of oil in the uper in take chances are that the seals inside the turbo are leaking and if you have excessive blowby then perhaps a replacement of the o-rings on the injectors might be needed but i would say that 5-6 thousand sounds way off the mark as far as replacement parts and shop labor

1988 2.5 t oil leaking from turbo


If oil is physically leaking from the turbo, out the exhaust side, the turbine side seal needs to be replaced. Based on it being a 1988 it probably needs to be gone through completely(replace seals & bearings) or replace the turbo. If the oil switch is leaking you will need to clean around the switch and verify if the fitting is leaking or the switch is leaking.
