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?

A6 turbocharged. Whyu does it smoke when it covers a 120km per hour?


I am going to say 'blown turbo'. As I understand it, they needs replacing every few years. They are susceptible to heat and incredible revolutions. They have to be lubricated, the seals go, and you get smoke.

Oil leak at turbo


It is time for a rebuild. If you don't get it done soon, it will be time for a new turbo.

I found what is described as an Audi a6 2.7t stage 2? For cheap. the owner says it starts but dies when put into drive. does this sound like a major problem or a minor fix


It will not be cheap when you have to pay for all the repairs that the car will need. These are very expensive cars to maintain and fix.

The owner is selling the car because he does not want to pay the repair costs needed or he cannot afford the repair costs. If it was a minor fix (which it is not) the owner would have had it repaired and have a car that runs to sell instead of one that does not run and will be hard to sell.

Since you are not a mechanic that knows and can fix these cars yourself, stay well away from this car unless you want a car with numerous very expensive problems.

Audi epc light


What ,year audi and model? EPC LIGHT PO299. let me see if i can find out with out year and model.
okay, if your car has turbo then this is correct, po299 low boost.
this may be caused by a bad diverter valve on the turbo, if you remove it and look ay diaphram for any cracks or splits in rubber, if it is then replace it ,check for an update valve at dealer.
there are other thing that can cause this code but start with that. a loose hose for the turbo can cause this code or bad turbo or clogged converter, or oil sulge problem.

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.

Hi I am a seventeen year old girl working at McDonalds. I need really good information on how much it would cost to fix a scratch from a pole that I got while backing into a parking spot. Please help. I...


No one can really give you a good estimate without actually seeing the scratch. What I can tell you is that a good quality repair that will blend in properly and stay that way likely will cost you at least $500.
Paint is very expensive and someone that knows how to blend to match your paint exactly demands that kind of payment (it's an art).

Replaced turbo, now smoking


you need to talk with some one at Audi or someone who does Imports repair but it sounds as if there is something wrong with the Turbo you can also stop by your library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car Merry Christmas & Happy New Year as always wish you the best of luck Michigan Man

2002 audi a4 quattro maintain acceleration problems


Likely a faulty diverter valve. If you have some decent mileage on the car the DV may be failing. It's a flimsy design with a plastic internal diaphragm. They're not terribly expensive (you can buy them at www.ecstuning.com or www.purems.com).

That being said, I'd still look around the turbo and intake systems for a loose, cracked, or disconnected vacuum hose - a vacuum leak should trip a check light but it may not always do so. Look for that, and if nothing is apparent, then I'd look at changing the DV.
