Dear all, I own a 1989 900 8v Turbo which has done 114,000 miles. Unfortunately the turbo is on the way out because blue smoke is coming out of the exhaust. Could anyone tell me how long it is likely to last in this state before the turbo finally goes (the smoke usually comes out in a puff when I come to halt and then goes). Is it likely to be the oil seals that have gone? Since I'm rather short of the pennies, is it possible to buy a repair kit for the turbo? Where are they available from? How much do they cost? Thank you in advance, Alan Brighton, England.
