turbo oil leak

Post by bongosaab » Sun Nov 04, 2018 12:32 am

Starting first time in the day is getting more difficult and involves lots of filthy black smoke. After that it starts runs fine and starts without much difficulty for the rest of that day. But will be trouble again the next morning. A mechanic suggests that a damaged seal lets turbo oil pass into the injectors and the build up of this overnight has to be blown away before the engine can fire. Has anyone had this experience or of changing/repairing the turbo?
Cheers
