should oil come out of the dipstick with hot running engine on a landrover freelander td4?
it has just come back from the garage after having a new turbo fitted

Why take out the dipstick with the engine running? Some oil will splash out.

WHOOPS! Did they change the TUROB OIL FEED and RETUNR Lines along wiht this repair??? Perhpas the OIL PRE$sSURE RELIEF VAVLE is stiking! YOu MSUT use only SYNTHETIC OILS that can handle the HEAT given off by a TURBO! If the TURBO in an airplane goes BAD, then plane DROPS! CAR TURBO's are the same thing! BAD OIL will ruin them!!! Ii have had TWO BEAUTIFUL AUDI turbos with high mielage, and NO turbo filures, but I used only PENNZOIL SYNTHETIC LONG LIFE oil in them or MOBIL ONE 0W_40! the FACTORY FILL on AUDI trubos is PENTOSIN! It MIGHT be the same for YOUR car! Try TOTAL ENERGY SYNTHETIC OIL as well! TURBO failure is nearly ALWAYS caused by COKE and SDLUGE build-up wihtin the bearings from IMPROEPR OI LUSE! OIl coming from DIPSTICK may mean that you stil have a CLOG in the engine, or that your OIL CONTROL PISTON RINGS are JAMBED UP with HARDENED COKE and slduge, STILL! I ahve a TREATMENT for this that is EASY and really works! GOOD LUCK!!

available sure, low in value no. sell the petrol and purchase a diesel. Sorry. too a lot to alter to make it useful with a Freelander. The a million.8 authentic regarded after with the top gasket concern solved is a perfectly good engine. pass to a good professional not a important broking and get the engine fixed. seem on the sequence those days in Land Rover proprietor on sorting an exceptionally undesirable a million.8 Freelander. a clean head and head gasket at the instant are not perplexing to get or greater healthful, seem in LRO for a professional close to to you.

That is a sure sign of crankcase breather problems. I'm not familiar with the Land Rover but there should be a fairly large hose connecting the crankcase to the air intake. If that plugs up the oil will come out of the dipstick due to blow-by pressurizing the crankcase.

It has either been over filled or, something is causing a lot of sump back pressure. Take it back and ask the same question. But it should not be blowing oil out of the dipstick hole.

Sounds like the turbo fitter needs to read the instruction book.
ADDED @ Thumbsdowners: so your informed opinion is that the turbo was properly fitted and just a coincidence that oil started blowing out? None are so blind . . . . . .

No it shouldn't. There are some issues with crank ventilation, take it back to the garage.

oil should not come out of the engine via any orifice while it's running, full stop. Take it back, or better still, get them to collect it before any more damage is done..
