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..

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!

...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...
