Was driving out the road yesterday in my R32 rb20det next thing clouds of blue smoke started pouring out the exhaust got back home straight away with it and popped the bonnet and she was after blowing the dip stick up out of herself.So today i pulled the turbo off her and there is slight play in the shaft only very slight play,so did a compression test on her and she is at 5 at cylinder 2 and 3 and 9 on the rest.My question is is she after blowing the turbo or the head gasket or am i really unlucky and after ****ing both.

Any help and advise on this would be greatly appreciated

Cheers

Is there any oil in the inlet pipe from the turbo? If not its probably ok but with the compressions all over the place like you listed and the dipstick blowing out I'd say its your head gasket thats gone. :doh:

sounds like crank case compression is blowing the dipstick out. could be the rings on 2 and 3, the compression is way down. if not then its probably the head gasket.

Yep definately sounds like engine probs, especially with the dipstick blowing out and the comp being that low on 2 and 3, plus when my turbo has gone everytime i've had oil everywhere.

get a let-by test done as a compression test shows **** all as its a turbo car.
i would go for piston rings are gone.im afraid its alot more expensive than a h/g or turbo if the rings have gone.
