Turbo Oil Pipes rusting through

Recommended Posts

Hi All.

On Tuesday morning I thought i had killed the V8. :o

Driving it to work I had the window down (not listening to the engine sound honest guv) I smelt something a tad funny then in the rear view clouds of smoke out of the right hand engine cover.

Pulled up and jumped out and oil pouring everywhere. Limped it back home and done some digging.

Turns out the banjo on the oil pipe to the turbo has rusted through and quite a large hole has developed and peed
