Well you are adventurous.

Do you think you are close to the original timing? Or could you be teeth off in the drive belt or chain?

You can time the vehicle by ear, just turn a little at a time until it sounds like it used to.

I recomend that you get a factory shop manual for the car and follow their detailed instructions on setting the timing.

Good Luck

I have a vw lt 35 2.5.diesel truck 2004.the problem is that the power most of the time is very poor.feels like the turbo is not cutting in,yet other times the power cuts in and really puts you back in the...


apart from the obvious choice of checking the air supply pipes to the the turbo and then from turbo to inlet manifold ,the only other course is the electronic sensors and the computer ,This would have to be either a dealer or a Bosch agent ,and the chances are the agent would only send it to the Bosch diesel specialist.These new models have a lot of complicated software involved and i wouldnt evan like to give any sort of answer without a visual inspection myself to try to diagnose the problem

I want to add TURBO to my 1996 Golf III Diesel, and need to know what to change/add. Thanks.


well i have never done it myself. but its going to be alot of hassle.
its not the same as sticking a turbo on a petrol

1 you need a manifold which will suit it
2 for best results you need an exhaust to match
3 you will need to replace the fuel pump. to match the size of your engine (preffrably take the turbo and the fuelpump from the turbo version.
4just as well stick a new timing belt on while the fuel pump is off
then you need to tap into the oil as turbos need a constant oil feed. and that might require drilling and tapping into the block.

this is only an educated guess but im sure its pretty standard in fitting a turbo to a non turbo viehical.

1990 Toyota surf turbo diesel (dosent start)


check air hoses from turbo to air box if any holes it will be sucking in too mutch air and bypassing the airflow meter situated in hose this will cause the fault to occure.

(TOYOTA SURF 1990 TURBO DIESEL) No diesel coming out of fuel pump


Fill your fuel filter all the way up and take precaution not to get any air into pump. Try this several times. Once you get air into some pumps it can be very hard to bleed it off. There should be some way to bleed. Look on pump for bleeder.

Want to fit turbo to my car


how much time/money do you have?

sure it is possible, but it won't just be a mechanical solution, you will have to change all related systems to the turbo units.

the attachment of the turbo will be fairly easy... then...:

you will need to rework the exhaust
add oil supply to the turbo, a return, which means new or modified oil pan
turbo EFI system capable of feeding the turbo, may need new fuel pump as well
turbo computer (or computer hack) to understand forced induction, which may also need some sensor changes
non turbo pistons may not be sufficiently strong
...
...

yes it is possible, no it is not easy.
