Hello

looking for some advice on someone who can possibly rebuild my l200 (2005) engine. Just had a company full refurb the truck and now its blowing blue smoke once started up and there is smoke coming from the breather hose in the top of the crankcase which seems to be blowing some oil into the air intake going to the turbo. Its stops smoking after driving and the engine heat temp is fine and there is no noticeable issue whilst driving ( no power loss etc). change the engine oil, the filter and have been told could be the turbo. Also did a test on the gases coming from the radiator and the fluid remains blue - supposedly means no failing in the head gasket ?  So i am thinking it must be some sort of failure in the actual engine ( I am not a mechanic - just read lots of stuff..) anyone know a respected re builder in the Northamptonshire area that i could contact ?  ( ps. previous owner had spent of ?3.5K on rebuild only 25,000 miles ago... belie it was a conrod issue)  any advice would be great as to much money into this now to stop!  thanks

The only shop I dare recommend is Ivor Searle at Soham in Cambridgeshire, not too far from you in Northants.
They have the machines, the people with the skills and access to repair parts that we don't have.

I had a recon engine from engineering services in Rainham; Essex over 100,000 kilometers ago and its stillgoing well except for needing a new head last year. I can recomend them.

I think you'll find that they went bust some time ago if it's the same company i'm thinking of -  Engineering Services (Rainham) Ltd

Thanks all...

i supposed there is no way of knowing if it is the turbo before i go down the full engine route ?   would it be advisable to get a used cheap one and get someone to put on and then see - and if so get a full refurbed afterwards.

Also would a dingy turbo cause the smoke coming out of the breather pipe ?  i dared today to take off the EGR pipe and seemed actually clean compared to some of the pics.... not sure how hard it would be to take off the turbo and replace myself - any advice ?

thanks
