W638 110D TD 2.3 OM601 Turbo fail/exhaust manifold leak

Hello everybody,

It seems I am out of luck with this car, now the turbo has failed. I have a large oil leak on the back of the engine. I am not 100% sure that the turbo is the problem or something else but the noise and the oil from the back of the engine seems to indicate that the turbo/exhaust manifold are gone. Why the exhaust manifold too? Because I can hear a noise only under load/cold start like a gas leaking pipe. So I took a look under the car and saw a lot of oil coming from somewhere above the turbine/engine...

So please help. What shall I do? Sell the car cheap and look for another in a better shape or fix this one and hope nothing else major fails...

OK. So I got some time this week-end and I checked the exhaust manifold and it was not leaking, it was merely loose. I tightened the bolts and now the sound is gone.
It was it seems an easy fix in the end.
