Turbo / Boost Issues


Sounds like a faulty boost pressure sensor or waste gate. I would check the waste gate first. Sounds like it is opening to soon and letting the boost out, than regaining again.

Audi A6 3.0 tdi Quattro 2005, glow plug light comes on, limp mode


16619 -Engine boost condition - Limit not reached. Check intake hoses/ connections for leaks. Check Turbo charger waste gate regulating valve/ waste gate working correctly. Must move freely when accelerating, won't achieve full boost if waste gate sticking open. Check Turbo impeller turning freely, oil feed pipe for turbo can get blocked causing impeller to seize. Engine compact, not easy to access these components.

On my golf gti the turbo is squealing wen the boost kiks in and theres no power from the turbo what so ever, is it the bearings?


It could be the waste gate that controls the turbo boost. Check your lower inter-cooler tubing from the inter-cooler to the turbo just to double check and make sure it's all buttoned up. If it's the bearing, there would be lots of blue smoke from the tail pipe. Good luck and keep me posted.

Golf mk 4 gti turbo starts up but wont rev past 2000rpm


turbo is malfunctioning the turbo waste gate is not working take it to a shop right away, preferablly tow it so as not to damage the engine, if the exhaust gas's gets near the turbine bearings you will burn up the engine and the turbo cna explode like a hand granade and destrou your enging.

Waste gate jammed on torbo on 2002 passat


go to alldata.diy.com pay $20.00 to get detailed info on the trubo, most likey the hose is wore out the rubber hose and will have to be replaced the waste gate keeps from over boosting the engine so if the hose is worn the clamps won't hold it any more. remove the hoses on the turbo wiggle the turbo shaft back and forth and end to end there should be no play in the shaft if there is you need a turbo kit and can buy one to rebuild it, look up bell turbos in oregon on the net and get his number he can tell you the cost of the kit and how to rebuild. If you have excessive oil on the rubber hose then you have a blown oil seal and it will need to be replaced. you are lucky at this pont and the kit will come with what you need to fix the waste gate as well, but dought the gate is the problem.

It seems like the turbo does not kick in to full potential. Is there a way to open up the waste gate?


you need to check the pipes that connect the turbo to the exhaust manifoilds these are common to leek at the gasket if there is to large of a leak turbo wont work properly the waste gate on these motors is actuated with oil pressure if the turbo pedistal mounting seals are bad turbo wont work right ethier waste gate isn't adjustable

Your description sounds like a waste-gate problem.
These are intended to prevent overpressure from the turbo and yours might be faulty.

The oil leaks may not be related to the other problem - Jeez, would love to own some vehicle that never leaks oil from somewhere.
