Get it rebuilt. Take off the down pipe and wiggle the turbine see what kind movement you have. Most the time the bearings get worn then the metal ring seal goes and the turbo will leak oil into the down pipe. Rebuild is like 365 to 400$ as long as you did not destroy the compressor wheel or turbine wheel. Amr does rebuilds for a decent price.
