Hi .
Okay this sounds like a turbo oil seal leak .
Pull the hose from the intercooler or turbo and if you see traces of oil then suspect turbo oil seal failure .
Have this checked and tested by your Repair shop .
If the seal has blown this can be repaired by your diesel lab and save on buying a new replacement turbo .
Need further assistance then please get back to me with the reply box below
if you rate now the question will stay open in case you need to get back to me .
