    Default Help with C4 HDI Oil issues

    Hi All

    OK 2006 C4 HDI, Blew a turbo at about 124,000 and from that learnt all about the issues with this engine and Oil blockages.

    now at 175,000 and I have had to have the oil pick up in the sump cleaned twice in the past 4 months.
    Seems to block after about 3000klm's

    Nearly ready to walk away BUT…. before I do, can anyone suggest a REAL fix for this?
    Is it really an issue with leaking injectors creating carbon and blocking up the oil intake?
    I really do not want to spend big dollars on the injectors if this is not the cause of this problem.

    So any one who has had similar issues I would love to hear, and also if anyone can recommend someone in Melbourne that will do a good and fair job of fixing it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Brian

    It's your decision whether or not to believe the postulated cause, but many repairers will aver that going "by the book" on a replacement turbo, is going to make all the difference. An acquaintance in the UK reckons he has nil comebacks on these; the approach includes making sure injectors are seated and sealing correctly, the turbo line feed strainer is gone, and the pickup thoroughly flushed.

    Quite a few people are reverse dimpling the sump as well.
