Question about 2000 Audi A4
HOW DO I MAINTAIN MY TURBO. IT'S BLOWN TWICE IN ONE YEAR AND IT'S REALLY EXPENSIVE TO REPAIR. I'VE BEING IDLED THE CAR BEFORE SWITCHING OFF THE IGNITION WHEN SPEEDING. WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO. I DON'T WANT THIS TO HAPPEN AGAIN AND I LOVE MY CAR
They will only be having a look at the problem tomorrow but claim to have done all that replacements. Even though it only happened twice, it's a total inconvenience. Thank you though.
Any other suggestions?

When the turbo was replaced before, did they change the oil feed and drain lines as well, or just connect the old ones to the new turbo? If they didn't replace them, it's possible one of them is clogged with oil sludge (the 1.8T is famous for sludge). That would be a sure-fire way to kill the turbo.
Stormbrewin is on track with his question too - what was the cause of death of each of the failed turbos?
