What was the intial reason for replacement and where was the turbo sourced?
it was on a Kia Carens 2L diesel 2008 reg. The turbo was a re-con from BTN turbos. It was not faulty. The original turbo had been starved of oil due to blocked dpf filter. The mechanic cleaned in diesel and refitted when installing the new turbo, after 2 weeks that turbo blew again after dpf being blocked again. another turbo fitted and then thats when within an hr of collecting from garage it developed the oil leak around the area of the alternator, damaging the vacuum pump. This time mechanic put new dpf filter on as again was blocked and replaced alternator and changed oil etc. We are questioning if it is likely that prior to this the oil pressure had not been tested correctly causing the leak as the car went back again for a 4th time after this with a blocked sump so it seems the mechanic may not have been very thorough initially. We were not informed by them as to what had caused the oil leak.
Ok thank you, ***** ***** original turbo failed it was making an awful noise. The mechanic admitted to me that initially no new oil feed pipes had been fitted. He was also unable to do a forced regeneration on the dpf. Thank you for your help.
