Early (2002) intercooler leaking oil mist. This model has pipe in/pipe out only with no sensor!
Nissan want a mint (£2K) to replace what is in fact, a small radiator. Cannot get it repaired as rad specialist (Express Rads) advise not feasable. Why is oil present there in the first place? Is it because of a faulty turbo?

Heavy black smoke from exhaust causing 'green' issues. Is there a connection?

Would love to solve problems as car is fantastic caravan puller & allround great car.
1st posting as cannot find way to introduce myself!

Hi there sounds like the turbo. oil is being pushed into the intercooler thus black smoke you can pick up a new intercooler on ebay do a search this will not solve the problem with the turbo also try a site called put your details in for what you want,then they will contact you direct by email or phone. hope this is of help. regards mark :|
