Hi.. What model do you have and engine size? Which Turbo pipe exactly was it replaced?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
2009 2.0 Litre Turbo SE, not sure on the exact pipe, was explained that there was an oil leak coming from the split in the pipe.

If there was a split in the turbo intercooler circuit then power issues can dont mention the extent at which the oil was leaking if from the intercooler pipe if thats what was replaced..Its not unusual to find an oil film within the intercooler circuit..but if there was large amount of oil built up or dripping out of the connections at the pipes/intake tubes the intercooler itself then that would account for a bad turbo most likely or breather issue....if there are warning on? then there should be some kind of fault codes stored..It could be that who ever plugged it in there machine just isnt upto the in that view normally on most vauxhalls nowadays you need near upto next to dealer level TECH 2/3 unless you can find someone with higher end scanner..a simple code reader wont cut it for finding specific faults bar just generic codes..if it was to list checks..probably the first would be fuel filter condition / turbo waste gate operation / egr operation,remove and clean/boost sensor cleaned/ and check values as per DPF saturation..
