2005 Renault Scenic Dci using a LOT of oil!

Hi guys,

Just bought this car and I done a full service the day I got it. In the last 3 days it's lost a litre of oil!

There doesn't appear to be any loss of power, and no apparent oil leaks from anywhere. There's no smoke from the exhaust at all.

Any ideas? Some good news would be great right about now

If its a 1.5 they have a bad habit of the turbo seals going and dumping oil into the intercooler, once the intercooler is full the oil is then drawn into the inlet and the engine starts revvin it's nuts off and eventually blows up!

If I were you I would check to see if the intercooler is full of oil at the earliest opportunity!

Re: 2005 Renault Scenic Dci using a LOT of oil!

^ guess what I'm going to be doing tomorrow morning then, seeing as I've already had someone else I know saying that I may have oil in the cooler and inlet... but not what the risk was.

Runaway is, like, my biggest fear, having switched to diesel...

It doesn't seem to have lost much over the last couple days, but I had some trouble getting a good reading off the dipstick last I checked it ... somehow oil's got smeared all up the guide tube so it's interfering with the actual reading no matter how many times I wipe it squeaky clean and put it back in. I mean, it's obviously showing that the sump hasn't gone dry, but I can't tell if it's eaten any of what I've put in over the last week, and the smearing may be a symptom in of itself...

Turbo seals? Sounds expensive :/

I shall check the intercooler later on today, thanks for the heads up!

If the problem is with the turbo seals would there be any damage as a result? And would it be a whole new turbo jobbie?

Funny you should mention that, i noticed the exact same thing with oil being smeared up the dipstick!

Thanks for taking the time to reply guys, much appreciated.
