My car is an '85 300TD Turbo. I believe it was purchased in the New England area (if that matters?). Should it have ever had a trap oxidizer on it? If it did have one at some time, I will try and check if it is still there. I kind of hope so since I have some problem with my turbo and a free new one would be mighty nice.

Only 85 model Calif. models had trap ox. The easiest way to determine if your car has one is to look at air filter assembly. On cars w/trap the air filter is behind right headlamp, all other cars have them on engine above the turbo.

It's not behind the headlamp, it's above the turbo.
