Turbo replaced but leaking oil from exhaust

Post by Sc0use »

Morning guys. Really not having the best time with my ds5 and it’s a shame as I really love the car. I previously posted that my turbo had blown. Dealer I got it off took it back, sent it to a turbo specialist and after a week I got it back with it a fully replacement. Iv only had it back less that 24 hours. Now..she’s leaking oil from the rear,when Iv got under and looked best I could it’s from the exhaust. Can this be just left over oil in the system due to turbo fail. They garage brought it back to me roughly 40 miles away and said everything was fine. Iv noticed also that the spot of oil ( very tiny spots) are going all way up to near rear window obv being spat out from exhaust. Car is driving perfect, no lights no nothing!!
is it a case of me giving it a few days to clear out or get back on the phone to garage again.
Brilliant car, just giving me a headache at the minute and really don’t want to have to give it back and call it quits!!
Thanks guys in advance!

I would take photo's of the oil and contact them, let them know as soon as possible so they don't claim it has happened after the repair.
Let them advise you or they may shift the responsibility on to you.
It could be residual oil in the exhaust and a good long run may burn it out but if you do that without notifying them then the could wriggle out of it.

Good advice. Alert them to the problem without delay. Oil does not usually lurk in the exhaust, let alone get blown out of it.
