    Default Pug 308 Turbo - Oil Feed Pipe

    Hi All,

    Wondering if anyone has had any experiences with the Peugeot 308 turbo Engines with a leaking oil feed pipe?

    i own a 2008 peugeot 308 XSE which i can see oil leaking from the top oil feed pipe (one with the heat shield) around the banjo connector... GRRHHH (already had the pipe replaces twice, under warranty) Now this is the third time around and car is out of warranty. have booked in for a inspection and see if i can get it done as 'Good Will'

    'S'tealer has quoted $120 for the part and abt $550 for labour.

    Wondering if anyone else has had this problem as it looks like a common fault?

    Other option is i was thinking of is replacing with a 'Teflon' coated braided hose to assist with the Heat Sinking and Expanding and hopefully stopping it from happening again. Has anyone done this before, and if so was it a success? (ive seen on the internet done on 207 GTI's)

    Any advise would be great?

    Thanks HC

    yeah ive changed heaps of these. unfortunately its pretty common because the join on the pipe is pretty piss poor.

    This was a common problem on the PSA 1.6 THP engines. The turbo oil feed pipe and gauze clogged easily. Many Minis with the same engine suffered the same fate. The new engines have a modified pipe and gauze filter.

    How bad is the leak ? You DO NOT want to starve the Turbo of oil.

    Change the pipe as soon as possible and then change the oil and filter. You have a choice of pipes but in essence you want a larger diameter pipe and avoid 90 deg bends. There is a gauze filter at the pick up end of the pipe in the sump which can get clogged.

    If not attended to quickly you may be looking at a new turbo or worse.

    ***When replacing the pipe, feed fresh oil staright into the turbo oil channels before connecting and use the correct oil.***

    Take off the intake pipe from the turbo [ when cool ] and check shaft play.

    What kills Turbo's most often [ shaft seal damage and clogged oil channels ], regardless of engine size or type is a lack of an idle cooling down period after a hot run. In other words if you have been using higher rpm or full throttle and then stopping and switching the engine off staight away the oil in the Turbo gets cooked and blocks the oil feed and wrecks the seals over time.

    Thanks for the info that's some good tips. I was planning on using some knead it on the pipe joint to seal it off for the time being and then possibly getting a braided hose made up. What do u think?

    I would do one of two things. The first would be to contact a Turbo specialist / truck garage and ask how much to make up a good turbo oil feed pipe and the second to consider installing the modified pipe from Peugeot.

    Braided hoses are still rubber / silicone inside and would have problems with the extreme temperatures that Turbos can produce so I would avoid that one.

    Like most things prevention is better than a cure.
