Turbo failure on JTD's common?
My car have been standing at the workshop now for about two weeks waiting for a new turbo. The car started to loose power and had problems going up hill. After the workshop had picked out the error-codes they disassembled and found the IC full with oil. Not a good thing.
My car(156 1,9JTD 16V Q4) only have made 110000km and have been served according to the book. Is it common that these Garret turbos fail so early? Should I change the oil more common than the book says?
Fortunatley I still have warranty on my car, since I bought it last december. So I don't have to pay for it. But it's not fun when yor car i standing in the workshop all the time...
