5 litres of Ford SAE 5w -30w (Formula E ) ...available from Ford (or sometimes a lot cheaper off Ebay).

If you try and use anything else,( eg 10w-30 etc)  then the turbo does not like it and the running becomes slightly sluggish

SOURCE: diesel turbo with no power at low revs

this tells me that the injector timing is off just a bit or you may have a weak injector all together.

SOURCE: Smoke from exhaust

Hi there,
The most common concensus with white smoke is coolant leaking into some where in the combustion chamber as in head gasket, however you have said its not.
turbos unless there is massive internal damage usually blow out black/grey sooty smoke.
Is there bearing noise in the turbo at all? or Loss of boost?
If so it could be early indication of the turbo failing.
I would reccomend goign to a mechanic and having a leak down test perfomormed. Sometimes called a compression test. Or you could buy a decent compression tester and check it yourself.
IT coudl also mean tha tna oil seal is blown or leaking
Check your coolant resivour to see if there is any oil in there and check you oil dipstick to see if it is milky or off colour. Generally if there is either of these two it means that there is some \sort of leak between the two systems Oil and coolant.
Anotehr common problem with these engines is a crack or warped head itself.
However if your sure its not either of the above it could possibly be water getting into the combustion chamber via the injectors as in dirty fuel, however you would notice knocking and predetonation/ pinging surely. and generally the car woudl be running really rough.
Make sure you keep a good eye on the coolant level as if it runs out it will surely kill your turbo friend.
Hope this helps you out there,
Cheers

I have a diesel turbo and i want to put it on my ford


There is more to supercharging an engine than just putting a turbo charger on it. Fuel delivery will need to be adjusted. A different cam shaft, valves and maybe pistons.
You will probably need a larger radiator to get rid of the additional heat. The additional horse power and torque will destroy the stock transmission and differentials so you will need to replace with bigger.
Oil should be tapped off just after the oil filter. There is probably a plug somewhere close. Be careful not to starve the rest of the engine for oil. May have to put a oil pressure gage at the end of the oil gallery to monitor minimum oil pressure.
Are you sure you want to "turbo" this engine?

Turbo on my diesel do not come on line most of the time, however when it does come on i can red line thengine and everything is smooth with full power,.When turbo is not on line on i get sluggish...


I had a similar problem in my Mondeo 1.8 TD a few years ago  and this was cured by changing the engine oil and filter to the correct type.

I had used the special  Duckhams 10w-40w Turbo Diese (or was it 15w-40w?) l oil  but once I changed it to the correct Ford 5w-30w (Formula-E ) ordinary oil, the turbo worked a treat every time.( I understand now that there is an even "thinner" option that works even better so worth checking ....Something like a 1w-30w )

A strange answer I know, but true

The only reason I used the Duckhams was because the chap in Halfords said it was the best one for a Turbo Diesel

Ford moneo turbo diesle s reg


there is a pipe witch runs from the diesel pump to the turbo which monitors pressure. sometimes a thin membrane in the pump goes releasing diesel straight in to the turbo especially on tick over. eventually that diesel is sucked in to the engine along with all the other gunk where it starts revving up on its own rattleing and banging. i have come across this on lucas diesel pumps before
