I had similar problem. The issue is related to a popped hose. Either from the intercooler exit to the intake manifold OR the turbo exit back to the intercooler. Check for oil leakage or spray of oil.

I am pretty sure its a blown hose. Best you replace all your hoses to silicone type ie Samco etc. They last way longer.


Note - my ford hoses appeared to be cracked when i took them out to inspect. My leakage was at the intercooler to intake manifold ( split at the intercooler side)

Thanks for the warm welcome. I had a shop reckon to get the existing turbo out and get the hybrid work done on it. Enlarged cores and a new set of uprated fins can be slapped on to it. However, i have approx 35000 KM left to go for the warranty to expire before actually touching it. That would probably the the approach i take. Just wondering if anyone has done a turbo upgrade on a focus tdci yet.
