Default Turbo

Hi, not rover related but I need to source a replacement turbo for my 1998 fiat ducato 2.5td motorhome. Looking for recommendations for either service exchange or rebuild of my own turbo.

many thanks

Ed

I used to live around the corner from this place - they seem good, and helped me out a few times: https://acturbos.co.uk/

If you get a new turbo ensure you get a new oil feed pipe as a must. Did the turbo fail due to wear and tear or was it oil starvation. If oil starvation you need to find where the blockage in the lubrication system is or you will be buying a few turbos over the next few weeks.

The turbo is passing oil into the exhaust so it would appear to be a worn seal.
