Turbo Shaft Play??
I have another post about possibly cooking my turbo. Anyhow, I went out this morning and took off the intake tube, and got to the impeller, and I have about 1/4 to 3/8s of shaft play (I can pull the impeller about 1/4 the way out when wiggling on it) I think this is very bad, and probably is causing my problem. Blowing blue smoke with black smoke when I get on it, and a big puff of blue smoke when I let off the gas. Does this sound right?? Seems like time for a rebuild or new turbo. Just want your guys opinion. Thanks
