kool is nice to know.... oh yeah i mean reply not replay my bad
I was told by someone that they burn about half a quart for every thousand miles...isn't that why everyone always says to check your engine oil everytime you fill up the gas tank...just to keep an eye on it?
That's a completely false statement to generalize about turbo vs NA cars burning oil. The M5's NA V10 burns a quart to a quart and a half of oil between every oil change.
The higher performance an engine, the more likely it is to burn oil. That's a better generalization.
k so im guessing that i have the problem of blown oil seals in my turbo. I have oil coating the entire inner of my turbo and into my intercooler and even into my throttle body. So what does it take to replace the seals or should i just get a used turbo. Also if i replace the turbo will i have to drain oil and coolant?
