More detail would be nice, but I can give you a worst case scenario..
The mk4 Passat 1.8t has been plagued with clogged oil pumps. The oil change intervals might have been too infrequent, sludge builds up, and the only fix is to drop the oil pan and clean or replace the pump.
Just a wild guess but insufficient lubrication and low oil pressure/volume could have led to engine damage. Its hard to say without hearing it.
In the mean time check your maintenance on the car, if it has gone more than 60,000 miles without a new timing belt and tensioner, fix that right away!! When those belts give up the ghost, its time to invest in a new engine.

SOURCE: VW Passat turbo broken

Pricing for the replacement will vary widely based on who does the work, but you'll typically find better prices at an independent shop than at a dealership. When you choose an indie shop though, make SURE they're a Euro specialist. You honestly don't want a guy working on your high-tech turbo engine when he spends his days wrenching on Mustangs and Chevy trucks. As for whether you have to do it - yes you do. The turbo is an integral part of the car and the car won't run well at all (and will likely degrade further) if you don't fix it.

SOURCE: 1999 VW Passat 1.8 turbo Code #3 cylinder misfire.

Coils and plugs are not the only things that can cause misfires. Misfires can be caused by vacuum leaks, low compression, faulty fuel injectors, clogged EGR ports (on vehicles with individual ports for each cylinder), blown head gaskets, burned valves...you can spend a LOT of money on parts by just going in and replacing things without diagnosing WHY the cylinder is misfiring.

A knocking sound on my 98 vw passat engine and a ticking sound on the upper engine side - help


I fear the news is probably not good. Many Passats around 1998-2004 were badly affected by engine sludge even when oil changes were done regularly.

These noises usually mean that oil starvation has caused an engine bearing to fail, and also excessive wear in the camshaft area. If the sump is removed the sludge (if there) will be seen.

Vw passat 2006 whistle sound after changing turbo


you must have a air leak between turbo and air intake somewhere so run engine and have a good look but if the old turbo was worn out then this is why it sounds different as its quite normal for these vehicles to sound a bit potent to say the least

For a 2008 vw Passat, is it normal to burn 2 qrts of oil between changes? 4 cyl 2 0 turbo


VW RECKON that oil usage around 1/2 litre per 500km is acceptable !!!!!!!! yeah right...i suppose it does lubricate the turbo blades....and the exhaust pipe internally....you could use 20/50 instead of 5/40 that would cut it down,but not do much good to the engines long life..... VW reckon about 150,000m before rebuild.

Oil usage in 2006 passat 2.0 turbo


I had the same problem with my wife's 2006 passat turbo. We lost 2.5 quarts in 3000 miles and the warning light came on. They put us on a 1000 mile oil test and I lost 1.8 more quarts of oil. They finally agreed to replace the rings. Service tech told me that the factory rings are defective, they begin to lead after about 25,000.

Motor is knocking but has plenty of oil


The knocking could becoming from the cam or crank shafts. Do not mess about, get a mechanic to check it out. I hope I am wrong.
