In Topic: blown turbo on ford focus TDCI 2003? 115ps 90,000

29 May 2009 - 11:15 PM

thanks jasmeet,
yes iv cleaned inlet and outlet pipe and intercooler has been washed out (they were dripping in oil)
iv done about 60 miles since, not sure if geting better or not

it seems to struggle at 2000rpm , very juddery , sometimes shaking the car

nobody seems to know the symptoms of a bent conrod or bent valve (thats what garage said it could be)

it idles over ok and is notbad upto 2000 rpm and over 2400 rpm

one day it stalled, then when i started it , i got tons of smoke out of exh so i parked up for the night and iv not had any smoke like that since

Hi mate,
should think when your turbo blew it will have lost oil into the exhaust which may have contaminated your cat which explains why your getting oil droplets from tailpipe..

yes mate, lost about 1 to 2 litres out of exhaust when it happened , but ithought they didnt have a CAT diesles ?
