Blown Turbo?

2008 cobalt ss tc 97,000 miles zzp ecu, has a ton of oil coming from exhaust, builds 0 boost, canít feel any play in turbo shaft.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

If you have oil coming out the turbo housing probably cracked and oil from the oil feed tube is leaking on the exhaust side. Chances are you'll have to take it apart. Not that big of a deal to replace but a bit pricey. Around $500USd or you can always buy a Chinese version ( they're all made there anyway )
