Driving home in my mondy 2.0 TDCI last night and i had a loss of power and soon after black smoke was everywhere inside an out side. Loads of it. One person stopped and rushed out with a fire extingisher! everyone came out side to have a look! She still runs ... I am correct in saying my turbo has blown. How can I check ? what else can i look for. Don’t mind getting me hands in the bonnet.

Please Help

Many Thanks

oh, sounds very nasty. i would say the turbo has gone :( pull the dipstick out and check the oil level, chances are its been feeding on engine oil. i would pull some of the turbo pipe work off and have a look.

OK cheers guys got a turbo off Ebay for £180 thought i would list on here some of the things i found out for others to see.

I believe there are two turbo for the tdci. you will find the part number on the bottom right hand side on a silver plate. Mine was 714467. (See img_4352.jpg) So ask for the number to see if it matches yours.

The turbo was ok to fit even for an amateur mechanic like myself.

1) Remove the heat cover simple three/four bolts.

2) Remove the large are pipe and another which in under it.

3) Remove the Oil feed pipe. Its down the back which you can see 13/14 mm banjo bolt.

4) Remove the Oil return pipe. Best to disconnect this from the sump as it accessible only 1 bolt.

4) Remove the 5/6 bolts which connects the turbo to the manifold, this for me was the hardest part. Once the bolts have been removed you should be able to wobble the turbo free. CAUTION My main shaft had snapped. I managed to pull it out of the manifold without it dropping in. (see img_4354.jpg)

5) Place the new turbo back in make sure it site back in the manifold and put everything back.

Change oil and filter and run for about a 100 miles then do another oil change. Iím not saying this is the correct way of doing it but it worked for me. Took me about 4 hrs blind not knowing this. Total cost for me was £220 allot better than the 1800 I was quoted.
