Hi all

Have a Honda Civic SE 1.6 i-DTEC from new and now out of warranty.
It bailed a load of smoke and went into limp mode.
Local mechanic showed me the turbo rotor is seized and oil is black as tar.

Its been fully serviced by local Honda dealers last one 6000 miles ago at 30000. First year service was 6K then 18K then 30k

Heres a pic of the air filter the mech pulled out.


I don't think there much history of turbo failure that I can find.
I would think lack of lubrication due to lack of servicing I think after seeing this filter.

Any thoughts advise is greatly appreciated.
