done a search and didn't find much,

so I shall ask.

The disco turbo with out manifolds etc etc ,, with it fit a def 200tdi manifold and bolt straight on (no mods)

so will it work.. is it the same turbo?

or failing that - who rebuilds turbos as my one is giving up the ghost - as in really really hi pitch scream when the turbo gets moving proper. the fans move side to side a little too much me thinks and also back and forth... so its knackered.

Would a knackered turbo also account for lots of blue smoke out the exhaust ? and poor running when cold?

I think that'll do for now :o)

Yes i think it is the same, if it screams you may just have a manifold leak somewhere but with the smoke some seals may be gone as well however i have heard that its easy to blame the turbo when its other things.

dont know if thats a lot of help but it shouldnt take too long to swap them over and check, the boost pressures are the same.

shouldn't take long to swap... yeah righto - -this is me we are talking about..

this is gona take a life time to sort- - spare bolts and nuts and stuff...

I am pretty sure its the turbo as I have litterally just finished putting the head back on, and thats all brand new, and looks lovely.. plus the fan bit/ is moving somewhat a great deal. when I am pretty sure it shouldn't move that much.

I am also hoping it would explain the oil trail as well... as the turbo does use oil and it also does play with the exhaust so I am wishing that it is... if you know what I mean.. :)

This weekends play...

pretty sure the manifold seal is good,, as its new..

The way to tell (generally) if your turbo is knackered is, when you switch off the ignition - does it carry on running for a bit? If so, then it's running on the oil sucked through the bearings.

The turbine should move side to side a mm or so. Once it's up to speed, the bearings run on oil/air with very little metal to metal contact.

As has been suggested, screaming is more usually associated with a leak. Smoke could be due oil being burned, or it could be a problem with the boost diaphragm or fueling generally.

It's worth taking the bottom pipe off your intercooler. If oil literally pours out - then you probably have a problem. If the inside of the tubes are just wet with oil (condensed oil vapour) that's normal.

right I shall give that a check..

how quickly should the turbo keep spinning for once the engine is off - - as in the fan at the front.. as when I did this last night it just kept going for a good 30 secs I reckon before it stopped.

I not sure where the air would be coming from? but I shall do up all the bolts again. or tighten them...

I think Simon means that your engine will run-on for a second or two burning its own oil, rather than the length of time it takes for the turbo to spin down
