Oil loss and oil in Intercooler tube
 
Hello everyone,
I have a Smart Cabrio CDI 2002 with 118060,527 miles.
I have from some times some oil losses and my mechanic said that there is oil in the Intercooler tube,is it probably that the turbine is going to break?
Thanks

...I don't think it's going to break....by the oil in the intercooler it already broke...
...your turbo needs a new carbon seal/rotor..

Jetfuel....next...

Biggermens, your number is quite impressive!

And some say our beloved smart can't go the LONG HAUL?

Wait... if my brain math is correct, even if the car is 2002, thatís more than 20,000 miles a day. Thatís over 800 miles per hour! Where are you driving?! Thatís quite the Autobahn!

Ya, i am kinda surprised that little motor last that long, but its pretty tired
I Picked up a wrecked Brabus with 40,000 Miles on it, gonna put the motor ect.. in my rag top ( The Chicks Dig a Red Convertible )
My other parts car has 150000 Miles on it, until the General its to late warning light went on, by then it was to late :( hehe

...it is always economical to replace the faulty component rather than the whole assy...
...find the turbo brand and check around the web for a seal kit...find a local shop that can and has done this type of work before...

Jetfuel...no biggie...
