Focus Connect Tdci Oil In Turbo

12 August 2014 - 08:45 PM

hi i have a 2004 ford 18 tdci connect ive just fitted a replacement engine that came from a focus tdci i changed the inlet manifolds and exhaust so it was running the standard 90 connect turbo ect now the problem im having is there is a constant fine stream of oil coming out of the turbo into the intercooler hose now this is were it gets tricky i re build the engine back up with out noticeing this and all seemed fine untill oil started coming out the exhaust and engine started running away with itself i managed to stall the engine so no damage was done i changed the turbo for another turbo i already had of a old engine and ran it with out the intercooler hose on this is were i noticed the oil comng out of the top of the turbo my first though was another faulty turbo although there is no play at all in either shaft all apears to be fine if checked that the oil feed and drain is good so just to make sure i sourced another turbo that came from a running car fitted it up only to do the same im out of ideas on this can any 1 help out thanks
