Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Need a new Turbo for my 2000 Jetta TDI

Hello,

The turbo in my 2000 Jetta TDI went out, according to the mechanics at the VW dealership. I bought a 2008 Jetta but it's not a diesel and I still love my TDI. Where can I look for a new turbo and do I have to buy it new or can I buy it used? My fiance thinks it also needs a catalitic converter (I am sure I spelled it wrong). Can I buy these supplies and have my jack of all trades fiance install it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi turbos are not the easiest thing to change on any car firstly you can get recondtioned ones for half the price of the dealers one and it has the same warrenty but they are all funny about getting someone who knows what there doing to fit them as the problem with turbos is the heat they generate and need a good oil supply to them so they usually insist on replacing the oil pipes and changing the oil and filter and clearing all the inlet pipes of blockages and flushing the its oil cooler as for the catalystic converter the problem your fiance is going to have is that this is another item that gets that hot when you come to remove them the bolts and sensors are weled together and are very difficult to remove it all depends on how good at taking things apart and putting them back together he is best of luck yates210456

Oil leaking around turbo on 2000 jetta


If you are getting boost, your turbo is likely not blown. There is a banjo bolt connection for the turbo oil. If it has loosened, then it would be leaking oil on the outside of the turbo. A blown turbo leaks on the inside (I believe, though not positive).

I don't have a TDI, but have a VW 1.8T with a turbo I recently replaced.

There is really nothing to fix other than to replace the turbo. It is not a tough job (at least the 1.8T wasn't) though it took 11 hours to complete. So you should try to get the oil leak fixed (near too much heat to ignore) but should likely only need to replace if it's not providing boost, or making strange sounds.

I have a 2003 Volkswagon Jetta TDI with 210,000 kms. The turbo keeps shutting off when I exceed 3,000 RPMs in 4th gear. It will reset if I shut the car off then restart it. My mechanic says it is not...


Same problem, same year, my car has just passed 300,000km, it is your waste gate actuator (attached to the turbo), or air flow sensor, or maybe a vacuum leak, also some relay thing (not sure what my mechanic called it). If it is the waste gate it's est. repair is $1,500. Thanks VW.

Mine first failed at 240,000km I took it to a non VW garage and they lubed the waste gate linkage and worked it back and worth manually, this was good for 40,000km, but now it shuts off almost daily. The cars PC won't show a code (might show turbo limp mode). Your mechanic will have to check the things I mentioned, or you might get stuck having to go to VW for the repair. $$$$$$$$

My 2000 VW Jetta TDI suddenly lost power on the interstate. It seemed that it took twice the RPMs to keep the same speed. Is this the turbo kicking off? At lower speeds it feels as if it does not change...


Most likely its your transmission slipping You will need to have it checked by a mechanic if the rpm is double then it has nothing to do with the turbo, if it's a automatic it means the clutches are slipping or if it's a standard it means the clutch is slipping from being worn out or the pressure plate is wore out.

I have a 2002 VW Jetta TDI and am problems with turbo.


Hallo
1.Disconect lower hose from intercooler and oil (from 0,1 liter or more) (sometimes 1-2 liters) comes out, you should not drive it.(car had probably loose power) Change the turbine, oil and oil filter. do not forget to disconect lower hose and let oil drain out. Otherwise when new turbine is instald, the air flow will **** this oil inside the engine and distroy it.
2.your car is not designed to run without turbine and will not work like normal disel.(SDI).
hope it helps

2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI WITH NO POWER


find your local vw service center and see if they can plug their computer in to see if there are any codes on the cpu. there may be one for an intermitent for the turbo. i ran into the same problem last month and it was the turbo veins are sticky so occasionaly it lack power going up hills. it did not cause the check engine light to come on, but there was a code on the cpu when they checked it. if it happens again while you are driving, pull over, shut the car off for 10-30 secs then restart it and see if it makes a difference. when it happened to me i called my guy and thats what he had me do and it was like a new car after that.
