Oil leak on turbo? (pics) c4 picasso 1.6 Bluehdi eat6

Post by Mexico14 »

Is this oil leaking from the turbo? Is it serious? Would an extended warranty cover this repair?

Best to check you warranty booklet, it is quite specific on what it does and doesn't cover.

Just make sure you have had it services according tot he recommended intervals and to the specified standards, and just as importantly, make sure you have been using the correct specification and grade of engine oil as this is critical to correct operation of the engine and components which is specified in the warranty.

That will almost certainly be oil from the crankcase breather system, it returns from the rocker cover to be passed through the turbo and burned, it is normal as long as the pipework is not blocked up with gunge. neglecting oil changes can cause this, as can short journeys.
