Re: Turbo problem on 1600 crossflow
Hmmm yes sounds like the fuel is sucking up the oil from seal..But I'd try a few things first...Make sure the oil return line to sump is directly down no kinks,atleast 15mm i/d...Some of these turbo's needed oil restrictors especially from Nissan..Install a 1.5mm restrictor in oil line....Another way is to go blow through...Either fill floats with foam or solder small bleed lines into them to equalise pressure..Do this onto of float if they are hollow....
There is NO crankase line to inlet manifold is there..The pcv should be o/k a it has one way valve...Take it out of box [ oil seperater] & check anyway...
It would possibly be cheaper to buy some s/h s13 turbo.. As they are often upgraded...Is there any movement/ play on shaft ?
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
