Do you have any info for me

Dear customer, my apologies for my delay. I understand your question. Let me explain to you, what had to happen is that first a turbo damage occurred caused the intercooler oil to pass to the engine and not vice versa, I mean what I am observing is that you think what the oil in the sump was what caused the damage to the turbo and that is not the case.

The damage of the turbo could have been caused by various factors, the important thing is that first of all to correct this problem you have to disassemble the intercooler and the turbo both have to be checked and if necessary replaced, it is very likely that the oil also has entered the engine cooling system therefore you will also have to check if the radiator also has oil.

Finally, I am concerned that the oil that entered the engine was contaminated because if it is so, you will have to do a thorough cleaning of the engine and therefore you will have to disassemble part of the engine.

It's basically what I can see in your dear customer inquiry.

Do you understand me dear customer?

Thankyou for the reply ,could the extra oil in the sump be caused by the dpf failing or doing to many regens ,and then causing the oil to be contaminated, also wander if its caused by faulty fuel injectors .
My van has been serviced in accordance to the maintenance schedule. However I feel the dealer is trying to push the blame on to me somehow .if normal usage and driving has been done ,would this cause any of the issues above ?

What happens is that the oil excess effectively makes the oil pass to the engine that subsequently passes to the exhaust, this causes the dpf to get load with oil.
This is when this dpf failure occurs.
So the problem initially begins because of the turbo, do you understand me?
