Re: Laguna 2 1.9 dci What have I done?

It does look like the turbo seals have blown and the engine started ingesting it's own lube oil . You'll need to find out why the engine stopped by itself - if not stalled they usually run until they consume all the lube oil and then the engine seizes.

You recent oil change may have disturbed some gunge around the innards of the turbo oil seals making them lose their integrity. I've seen it happen once before on a Skoda - the poor mechanic was just test driving the car after it had been serviced.
