There is white smoke coming out of the back of my 2005 aui a4 2.0 tdi


It's very simply to find out if the turbocharger is causing white smoke from the exhaust vs a blown head gasket. So, remove the turbocharger's compressor inlet centre hose (from the aluminium side of the turbo). Then see if there's in plenty of oil coming out from the hose and from the turbo. I'm 100% convinced that the turbocharger is damaged in your case. You can remove also the exhaust pipe out from the turbocharger, and see if there's a lot of oil coming out.
Repair or replace bad turbocharger with a new one (or with a second hand in good condition one).
Good Luck!

Tip

Turbocharger installation


In order to avoid any possible damage while installing your turbocharger or premature operating problems, either of which could invalidate the warranty, please follow these simple intructions carefully and completely.
1) Ascertain why the old unit failed, you don't want the same problem to recur and damage the new unit.
2) check for cleanliness. the smallest particles of dirt can do irrevocable damage to a turbocharger so check engine intake/exhaust and aftercooler systems for cleanliness and obstructions, carefully removing oil, pieces of gasket, dust, dirt and other debris. Replace the air filter.
3) Check the oil inlet and oil drain flanges are clean and free from obstruction, internal carbon and sludge, removing them to clean if necessary. if in doubt replace with new.
4) Replace the oil and filetr
5) Check that manifold casting is not cracked on the outside or breaking internally.
6)Mount the turbocharger on the exhaust flange checking that turbine inlet gasket fits correctly to give a gas tight seal.
7) Connect the oil drain pipe using gasket supplied - do not use any liquid gasket products.
8) Fill the tubocharger oil feed hole with clean engine oil and rotate the rotor by hand.
Finally connect all external fitting to the turbocharger. Start the engine and idle for few minutes, check the oil is not leaking and the warning sign does not come up, check all connection for possible leaks using soapy water.

How do you know the turbo is bad in a 1988 t-bird


Hello there and welcome to fixya

Turbocharger problems are some of the most difficult to troubleshoot. The main purpose of the turbocharger is to provide more air to the engine. The more air going into the engine the more fuel that can be burned, which results in an increase in horsepower. There are four main parts of the turbocharger: the wastegate, center rotating assembly, turbine housing and the compressor housing. By understanding how the turbocharger functions, it is possible to uncover the causes of problems.
Difficulty:Moderate Instructions

    • 1 Check the air filter element as this is a main cause of blue exhaust smoke. This blue smoke occurs when there is not enough air going into the engine. Check all ducts and pipes for obstruction or leaks.
    • 2 Clean the turbocharger. Dirt that has caked onto the compressor wheel or the diffuser vanes can cause all types of problems. If the turbocharger is very dirty or the center housing contains sludge then you should also check the filters. Dirt coming in to the turbocharger is most likely due to broken filters.
    • 3 Check with the engine manual to ensure that the camshaft or pump is working at the correct timing. Adjustments may need to be made as the turbocharger can change over time. If the turbocharger is out of sync, then this will result in a noticeable decrease in engine power. An additional cause of decreased power is a gas leak in the exhaust manifold or the turbine outlet duct. The less gas the less power that is produced.
    • 4 Check the turbine blade and compressor for any damage such as indentations or notches. This type of damage will cause screeching noises, whining noises, rattling and scraping sounds. You will need to replace the turbocharger as well as locate the source of the damage to prevent further damage. There is a chance that the noises are due to other eternal components and not the turbocharger, but a visual inspection is easy to check before moving onto other components.
    • 5 Inspect the actuator if the entire turbocharger is frequently overboosting or underboosting. Make sure that the actuator is not loose and if so tighten it to the specified torque values. If there is visible damage to the actuator and air leak or if the actuator spring has broken a new actuator is needed.

The turbo died for about 5 mins under normal driving conditions and re-started once the ignition was turned off and then on again.. This happened once in winter and then again in summer approx. 5 months...


In your case the turbocharger is responsible for engine losing power.
The car goes in "limp home" mode!!!
After scan the EDC-15P engine control unit with a VAG or KTS -BOSCH diagnosis tool you will find this: Fault code: P1557-Turbo Boost pressure control exceeded
1. Engine stopped and ignition switch off. Check all pneumatic connections and hoses between turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control, boost-pressure control solenoid valve, vacuum reservoir, EGR control solenoid valve, intake-manifold flap solenoid valve, EGR valve with throttle - part of intake manifold. Also the vacuum connection between tandem pump and brake booster. If you find something wrong replace parts. If not go to step 2.
2. Extract the hose of the turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control part of turbocharger. Instead of the original hose you must place another 1 meter long hose with the same inside diameter, and then you check to inspire yourself the air from the other one extremity of this hose. The mechanical connecting rod of the turbocharger actuator must have a smooth and whole motion. If you can do that with your mouth, then you must replace the boost-pressure control solenoid valve. If you can not reach this with your mouth, then you go to step 3.
3. This is the most difficult work. The problem is that the soot particles deposits inside the turbocharger plugging the variable nozzle geometry mechanism = adjustable vanes of the turbine. If the turbocharger actuator is not able to adjust the turbine vanes the charge air pressure increase too much and ECU (engine control unit) go in "limp mode" = engine protection software. As a result the "limp home" mode engine still running until you turn the engine off (ignition switch off) and back on when the "limp mode" is deactivated, but the fault still remain in ECU memory!
4. You must be able to extract the turbo from the engine and then to disassemble the turbocharger, clean inside adjustable vanes mechanism and refit all.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the coolant.

CAUTION

When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

  1. Disconnect the O2 sensor wire clamp and connector.
  2. Disconnect the Nos. 1 and 3 PCV hoses.

Car doesnt have power and is also smoking ,,,i put the new airflow mitter but still the problem doesnt go away


Check immediately the turbocharger! DO NOT START THE ENGINE WITH THIS KIND OF PROBLEM!
Remove the air inlet axial center hose of the turbocharger, in other words the compressor air inlet hose. Then check axial & radial gaps of the turbocharger rotor.
Check also the turbocharger oil pressure supply. Check the engine oil level also.
Repair & replace bad pieces.
In the most cases the turbocharger is out of order when engine puffing off blue smoke and losing power.
If the car goes in "limp mode"!!!
