Re: replacing oil pan
Not that hard,just the 4 bolts at the flywheel end can be painfull,there is a cut out in the flywheel to make it easier you will have to turn the engine over by hand to find them,use the proper vw sealant or you will have oil leaks,it aint cheap but its a lot cheaper than doing it again.......

if it is a turbo diesel (TDI) I suspect that the injectors need attention
if they are squirting , dribbling or are not atomizing as required then the diesel may be igniting before ignition time causing piston slap (the rattle)
Take it to a diesel specialist shop for a diagnosis and quote
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.
If it is grossly overfilled it can damage the engine as well as **** oil into the air cleaner and then the engine, on a diesel this can cause a run away engine because a diesel will burn the oil like fuel.
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 Marko
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
