While since I've been here but let me get straight to the point.
3 weeks ago I run very, very low on oil due to a leaking oil filter. The filter was replaced and oil filled back up.
A week later whilst my partner was driving the car the turbo failed dramatically. I had the car recovered and proceeded to remove the turbo, which was intact but well knackered. Not the easiest job I've ever done.
I have purchased a reconditioned unit with new gaskets. I have also drained the oil. I do keep reading that I need to replace the oil feed pipe. Is this necessary? I personally feel the cause of the failure being lack of oil not a blockage.
There is also oil in the intercooler and various pipes. The intercooler and pipes have been standing draining for a week now and have been wiped out as best as can be. Will this be suffice?
The vehicle is a 2002 Rav4 D4D.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Just bought a new Rav4 Invincible and sorted out the bells and whistles. (mostly)
In preparation for a ferry sea crossing,does anyone know how I can lock the car but not set the alarm, in case the trip is a bit choppy?
Also, there is small green thermometer icon on the right of the rev counter which goes out a short while after startup, which puzzles me.
Any help appreciated

Due to Sale of T180 RAV4 I am selling a New Spare Bridgestone Runflat designed for use with the RAV4 T180 (2006-2009). This is an 18" diameter alloy wheel. Selling for £250 - no offers! Martin@thecarpies.com Prefer collection as it is very heavy - the box it came in is not in great condition ! Located in South Buckinghamshire - SL8 This is a bargain, cost over £450 new, as it does contain the following components (plus the alloy). listed elsewhere - grab a bargain and piece of mind. Cash on collection or arrange your own courier. Apologies for upside down images !
