Question about 2002 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo S

2 Answers

Turbo maintenance Hi, I just got a 99 beetle turbo....Freinds said I should let engine run a few minutes before driving and a few minutes before actually taking out the key to let turbo cool down to avoid turbo damage. Is this true?

    My question was mainly to see if I could avoid doing that... as it takes alot of time. I guess Im asking is it necessary to go thru this routine everytime I drive the car. Thanks for your response.

If you let the car idle when you stop driving it gives the car time to recirulate fresh oil through turbo bearing , since the turbo gets extremely hot from the exhaust side (and spins at very high speeds) you really should also run full synthetic oil on turbo cars to extend turbo life.regular motor oil tends to burn and carbon up in turbo bearing and causes premature turbo failure .

Yes, it is good for your engine to allow it to warm up and pump up all needed lubrication before driving and to cool it down before taking off the key.

Loud noise folled by loss of power


In order to run a turbo you have to have low compression in your cylinders. when you drive to aggressively you can blow you turbo out and you car will have no power at all. A turbo pushes air into you intake in order to get that power. if it goes out your engine will run like its 30 years old and blown. get a new turbo. take care and good luck.

2002 Beetle 1.8 Turbo A/C quit blowing cold


You would have to measure the pressure to determine if it's pressurized correctly. The compressor won't run if it's low.
What happens when you push the a/c button? Can you hear/feel the compressor kick in? It seems like in most cases it's the compressor itself or the compressor clutch that goes. It's way too common in vw's...
