    Oil shooting from turbo when car is turned on?? 2005 wrx sti 131k miles silver

    Hi guys, have a 2005 wrx sti that I just got gifted to me. Cars inter cooler was off and exhaust flange bolts were removed. I put everything back together and oil is flying out from either in or somewhere around turbo. exhaust side of veins feel a little loose so I'm thinking that maybe the turbo is bad? Can someone chime in a share a few pointers as to the obvious items that should be checked?

    Would it be worth rebuilding this turbo? thanks guys

    Why?

    I put everything back together and oil is flying out from either in or somewhere around turbo.
    Find out exactly where and why, and post back.

    exhaust side of veins feel a little loose so I'm thinking that maybe the turbo is bad?
    What does this mean? Is there play? Is the play lateral or vertical? Is this the source of the oil?

    Can someone chime in a share a few pointers as to the obvious items that should be checked?
    Is the actual oil supply to the turbo secure? Why was the car apart?

    Would it be worth rebuilding this turbo? thanks guys
    That depends on which turbo you have, and I'm not convinced there's something wrong with it. Is there?

    Check the drain hose for the turbo and other various turbo plumbing

    i am guessing it is either the oil feed, or return lines. perhaps the last owner was in the process of disassembly when you got the car? the info you gave points to that being the issue. you can look at a schematic, or parts order form at your local dealer. to not only see what parts are involved, but order from the part numbers if they need to be replaced.

    Is the oil coming from the yellow or the red circled part? The yellow is the oil feed, which is pressurized. The red is the return and it is not. Did you put the copper crush washers on either side of the banjo bolt/oil fitting.
