Is there an oil cooler fitted to the car - these can go faulty and allow oil to get into the water system - alternatively could be a cracked cylinder head allowing the two to mixgus-lopez said:Anyone know if the oil feed to the turbo can leak into the water cooling jacket ?
That's it spot on ! You've described it exactly. I thought that was probably what it was as I've been looking for a noise for months & had more or less tracked it down as the turbo. I'd been looking at it yesterday morning & found side to side movement & had decided to purchase a turbo off of sedonagary ( which I have done ) when I checked the rad cap & expansion tank & found this light amount of creamy cappuchino ! It wasn't there before as I check oils & waters at least 4x a week.stevegx said:The turbo does have a water and oil feed. The seal on mine went the other day on M55. This caused the breathe rpipes to fully clog with creamy muck/sludge. The oil and water mixed. Replaced turbo from Sedona Gary £149(Bargain) fitted my self (PICS to come).
Kia dealer will charge a fortune for this and if it involves replacing the cam belt as a matter of course Blackpool will charge £445.00 just for belt change. Again I did this myself. I became a 'mechanic' after buying my Sedona. I have saved a fortune on time costs.
If Head Gasket gone. EBay H gasket, full kit +++ £60 ish from the Gasket Shop. I have used them 3 times now and are very good.

Hi. Thanks for the info. Brilliant. Bwenos notchiss !! ;0)gus-lopez said:Hi , sorry about the delay in replying. turbo arrived at my mate the
courier who's bringing it over , hopefully by next weekend.
I think I created the leak myself the noise originally started about
15months ago but would only be present when 1st moving in the morning.
Once the temperature rose in spring it disappeared completely & ran
faultlessly on a 5k trip to Germany. The noise returned as the weather
cooled , reappearing in early nov. It only ever does it when moving off.
I tracked it down the other week I then checked again for shaft play,
which there is side to side but doesn't appear to be any vertically.
That's when I appear to have caused the oil into water leak.
I live in Lorca, in the region of Murcia ( where the earthquake was last may ! )
There's a few PADI dive schools around here.
http://www.divinginmazarron.com/id6.html In Puerto del Mazarron.
http://www.viva-murcia.com/scuba_centre_estela_p300.php Águilas , just down the road from me.
http://www.viva-murcia.com/cabo_cope_diving_centre_p361.php Calabardina , just along coast from Águilas.
http://www.viva-murcia.com/aturasub_p680.php Cabo de Palos . A bit farther up from Calabardina towards La Manga.
here's a bit of dive info from the big blue planet.
the bit where they say 'village of 30k ', it is actually a town &
when they say 'increases in summer months ' they fail to point out that
it's by 10 to 15 times. Even so it's 90% a spanish area even in summer
& in july & august, when it's supposedly heaving you still have
no packed beaches.
Weather in this area is fantastic all year. Lorca
, which is inland 30kms from Águilas, is the 2nd hottest place in spain
& is known as the 'City of the Sun ' !
You'd be better asking accomodation when you know where you might be going.
are also some dive schools in Garrucha & Mojacar which are
south-west along the coast from Águilas & come under Andalucia.
Thanks again to all for the info. I'll let you know the outcome & will try & remember to take photos !
