Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser
It appears that the bearing and seal on the turbine shaft of the Turbo have failed causing the noise of a worn bearing and oil leaking past the seal into the exhaust system. Continuing to drive it will eventually remove all oil from engine if not topped up. The Turbo needs repairing urgently before any more damage occurs.
Turbos get very hot during brisk driving and need to be allowed to cool down before turning off the engine to prolong bearing and seal life. It is recommended to allow engine to idle for at least three minutes before switching off to allow the circulating oil to bring turbo down to a reasonable temperature.
