Re: Renault Laguna II - Phase 1 - Engines - DIY turbo swap on a DCi (turbo failure)

Just been reading all of th threads on turbo failure as I have a problem with my '02 1.9 diesel Laguna. The turbo failed and I lost all of the oil . Engine reved to 3000+. I stalled it as it would not shut down on the button, but as I was in the road at a dangerous position, I started it up again and got it off the road (20 yards).
The RAC did a great job and got me home and the car to a garage.
We have changed the turbo , cleaned the ECR, renewed the oil feed pipes, cleaned the intercooler. But it will not start. It seems as if there is no compression in that the engine turns over but it will not fire. We think it could be that with no compression the injectors are not able to function, and think that the lack of compression could be due to a valve stuck or a piston ring damaged. However, when we inspected the old turbo the blades were damaged, but did not seem to be broken up and the fact that I was able to start it to get it off the road implies that the rings are OK.
We are now at a loss as to what we can do. one suggestion was to tow it on a bar for some time. Alternatively it looks like an engine change, or a car change.
Does ayone have any other suggestion to help.
