    Good day guys, I have a Golf mk4 tdi 2002, I have recently just purchased it and don't know the history of the car, I'm having a serious oil consumption problem about 500ml to every 70km. I asked around and people said it's the turbo, so I replaced the turbo at R12000 with Labour and I'm still having the same problem and my intercooler is saturated in oil. Please help I'm really stuck with this problem and it's costing me big time.

    Do you have blue smoke in exhaust, then the problem is inside the engine (rings, valves,...)
    If not it's likely an oil leak
