I know Renault insist on replacing the entire turbo system in the event of (even the itsy bitsiest smidget of) an oil seal leak, but why would an independant mech? If the intercooler and pipework is sound then why would it need more than just a clean? A knackered EGR is easily spotted, as is a leaky intercooler. Can't we block these pesky useless EGR valves anymore? That's what we old timers did when they first started causing trouble - gimme back my Morris Minor - actually, I never did try to fit a turbo to that thing......I tried NOS though. and I won't ever be so stupid again Dad, honest. RIP.
