found out why i have power issues my intercooler has to much oil in it hence the smoke some times (lots) just washed out the intercooler and loads of oil came out,the turbo blades seem nice and free with very little play on the shaft but i cant see why theres so much oil in there

Does anyone understand this turbo?

On a diesel it is quite common to have a black and oily intercooler etc, especially as mentioned above that the breather is in the inlet.

As long as your engine is not using oil, Just clean it all out thoroughly and carry on.

Due to the nature of turbo diesels they do tend to breath fairly heavily compared to petrol engines, so oil in the turbo pipes is common, however this should not be heavy but an accumulation over a period. Dripping from the top pipe would have me investigating, although not panicking!!
