Hi, my turbo went on my Sportage 2.00 2011 model. Cost £1400 for a new turbo fitted but then the DPF probably has oil in it. I have already paid to have it cleaned out but still have the same issue we’re the turbo loses power at about 60 mph. Tried DPF cleaner a few times but it never works. Will I need a new DPF?

Hi, are there any warning lights or codes to tell you it's a dpf fault. You haven't mentioned the mileage. Is the servicing upto date and the fuel filter changed. Why was the turbo diagnosed as faulty?

Hi, the fuel filter hadn’t been changed in over 2 years, the same for an oil change. When the fuel filter was changed, it was black with oil. Mileage is about 128,000. I was driving down the motorway and white smoke started bill5owing out the exhaust. I got into my local garage and the diagnostic was that the turbo had gone. New turbo, oil change and filter but the engine warning light is coming on. Took it back and he advised its the DPF. I took it to a DPF specialist and he reckons there is oil in the DPF. I guesse Ian going to have to bite the bullet and take it to another specialist, doh

How does oil get into the fuel filter? Either serious misfuelling or very dirty filter that looks like oil.Hope it is the dpf and it gets fixed.
