Lotus Excel Oil return hose replacement
Does my Lotus Excel need the oil return hose replaced?
If your Lotus Excel has a turbo fitted then it will also have an oil return hose.
Your Lotus Excel turbocharger operates at very high temperatures and therefore needs a lot of oil circulated through it to lubricate the moving parts and for cooling purposes.
There is a dedicated supply hose to supply oil to the turbocharger and a return line that returns the oil back to the sump once it has circulated through the turbocharger.
Common symptoms of a failing oil return hose include cracks or bulges on the hoses and visible oil leaking from the car.
If you don't replace your oil return line when you notice it starting to crack, bulge or leak it could eventually cause the oil to leak out of the engine and cause irreparable internal damage to your engine and turbo.
