HELP engine / turbo problem 1.9 jtd

Hi, could do with some help please.

Driving on the motorway yesterday, major power loss from engine, accompanied with blue/black smoke, couldnt get over 2000rpm and no turbo kicking in.

It sounds as though it could be a split hose from intercooler to turbo, like many other threads have stated, which would be good, BUT.

The engine drank 5 litres of oil in 25 miles, driving very gently & there is oil inside the top hose from intercooler to throttle control.

would a split hose from intercooler to turbo cause a serious loss of oil, theres nothing underneath car, its all being burned through engine.

Any suggestions, a buggered turbo or split hose or seals/bearings?

any help would be most appreciated.

Ouch...! sound like the turbo seals/bearings have given up..the oil would be pushed through the inlet tract/pipework from the turbo, resulting in massive oil usage, no spin-up, therefore no oomphf...
If you are mechanically minded you could remove the unit and have it checked/overhauled by an engine shop..OR.. look for a mechanic who knows what they are doing...
