Hi guys,

Could anyone tell me if this turbo is knackered

Turbo play: https://youtu.be/_N3hHvCZNTE

Has a lot of play but not touching the sides of the castings, bit of in/out movement also

Come off a skoda ive bought with a burnt out exhaust valve

The video is private.

There should not be much play in any direction. Is there oil in the turbo housing?

Video now public, ignore the girlfriend shouting at the dog lol

There is oil in the pressure side on housing but the car has killed the valves on one cylinder so i don't know if it oil from the stem seals or blown turbo shaft seals. no oil on the exhaust side or evidence of it having a leak

i cant see any damage on the turbo vanes as i though perhaps a bit of valve may of gone through it

The turbo has way to much play.

If the car has "killed" valves on 1 cylinder, I don't think it will go very far. So the oil is coming from the turbo seals.

I've seen turbos with quite a bit of play in them and they still boost ok with no smoke just make sure there is no end float may be good for a few thousand miles.
