Turbo's gone again. six weeks after a good used was fitted

lotsa blue smoke, axial play in turbo shaft..loads of oil in intake


What can cause pre-mature turbo failure?

- oil supply is good - mostly in my exhaust now......

I wait till the engine is good and warm before giving any thing like


always let the engine idle for a few minutes before switching off

good oil - regular service..........

why me?

Very bad timing causing the turbo to over heat?

Or

Just very unlucky

Or

There was metalic rubish going around the system from the last dead one...
