Rav4 D4D Turbo Replacement

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

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.
