Im going to try and use gasoline and brake clean to clean all that out. Is this normal when a turbo seal gives to leak THAT much oil?

on a side note 18psi, i called usps to give me an update on tracking info, since that number hasnt been updated all week. theyre saying i should see it monday

At anyrate shouldnt be long until the cars back on the road!

I've no idea, apparently it completely burst open? that's a ton of oil.
gasoline and degreaser would be what I'd use. or maybe just degreaser, like purple power or something.

I've pretty much had terrible experience with every carrier lately. USPS, Fedex, all are idiots. I just pack really really well, and insure for at least the total amount, and hope for the best.

New turbo spits oil and I don't know why? -4 an to a restrictor. Then -10 an as a return. Maybe the line could get b straightend out better.



Also when throttle is applied the car the motor stalls?
I replaced the throttle body because my brother and I heard an electrical hum from the idle air control valve.
But the car still stalls out



Homer might be right at this point

Any suggestions why the motor would stall?

Check that oil return. 2 turbos spitting oil makes it sound like a blockage in the return to me.

I'm going to redo that line and see if that helps.

18 psi yeah i tightened everything down, and the turbo was clocked the correct way you shipped it too!

Anyone have the same problem with the motor stalling? When i searched it, the problem was solved once the valve was replaced. It has to be something dumb because the car was running pretty good until the turbo seals went bad spit all that oil into my intercooler

Those two breather lines going to the same little can inlet are too small and you are possibly building backpressure in the crankcase.

High crankcase pressure can push oil out of seals.

No idea, im at the point of tearing it down and seeing if i possibly cracked a piston from the dyno pulls? But im fed up with the car and low on cash so itll probably sit broken until spring. if anything changes ill update the thread. thanks to everyone helping me troubleshoot it!
