Turbo oil leak help please

Post by Benscab123 »

So, after having oil leaking onto the top of the turbo wastegate I was convinced it was just a poorly fitted oil feed pipe. I have now replaced the banjo bolt and copper washers and still have the leak. Could this be something as simple as the return pipe gasket not sealing properly or not tightened up enough ?
Only seems to happen when I go up hills, so assuming it’s when turbo is under more load.

Fixed it finally, the clown who installed the new turbo neglected to clean the mating surfaces of the oil return flange, and even more unbelievably didn’t install the gasket provided !!
Shan’t be using him again.
