    Hi can anyone help??

    On returning from work the other night I lost power, the engine started revving to 4,000 + a cloud of white smoke came out of the exhaust and i had trouble stopping the engine. Rac recovered me to my garage and advised it as prob the turbo. The mechanic dipped the oil & there was a lot more in there than there should have been (2 inches more on dipstick), last changed Xmas, have a new turbo on but running uneven and sounds like it's 'clattering' any ideas would be greatfully appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    did the oil smell of diesel as the high pressure fuel pump can leak in to the oil and cause damage to turbo and crank baring's
