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.

Volkswagen passat wagon 2004 codes p0300 p0302 p0304 p0011 runs fine


You have random misfire codes as well as misfires detected on cylinders #2 and #4. P0011 is likely the root cause of the misfire being detected
P0011 VOLKSWAGEN - 'A' Camshaft Position Timing Over-Advanced Or System Performance problems.

Possible causes- Dirty engine oil
- Low engine oil level
- Camshaft actuator circuit open or shorted
- Camshaft actuator circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty camshaft actuator

There may be a factory bulletin on this code, check with the VW dealer on that. Possible defective Camshaft actuator.

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.
