I just put a new (used from a junkyard) motor in my RX. I used the junkyard turbo also and it worked but was leaking oil. So I put my old turbo (which was working before I yanked the motor) in the RX and now the turbo does not appear to be functioning.

I dont know much about turbo operation.......and information/help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Gregg

The old ones are getting tossed. They are only $20 at a u-pull-it junkyard.
