If you used a different grade of oil or graphite oil, the nozzle that sprays oil on the bearings in the turbo can plug up stopping lubrication and that will cause a massive failure

Your car goes in "limp mode"!!!
If you 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"
You must try follows if you are able to do this:
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 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 ("Fault code: P1557 - Turbo Boost pressure control exceeded") 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.
It is some work to do here, but after that you will be full satisfied! NO MORE "LIMP MODE"!!!

Vw caddy sdi, when hot has a lumpy idle seems to shake the van, and leaves quite a bit of smoke,( blue tinted) at the traffic lights, doesnt seem to be using any oil over the last 600mile and seems to


The BST engine in your Caddy is prone to a couple of design flaws that can cause the trouble you are experiencing. Certainly, it could be an injector but could also be down to timing or the camshaft sensor. If you haven't had the timing belt changed, it may have stretched a tiny bit and that's enough to cause the problems you have with lumpy idle. Timing is adjusted on the camshaft pulley - but tiny adjustments can make a big difference. The EGR valves are also prone to sticking causing black smoke. Hope that helps a bit.

How much oil is required when changing the oil and filter in a 1998 VW passat sedan 1.8L turbo? I've also heard that there is a oil slugde problem with those engines, are there any additives or solutions...


1998 VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1.8L 4-cyl Engine Code AEB/AWM Turbo
Models with 1.8L Engine codes AEB, ATW, AUG, AWM only
use engine oil that is formulated to meet
Volkswagen oil standard VW 502.00
(with viscosity of SAE 5W-40, 5W-30 or 0W-40).


CAPACITIES: Engine, with filter..........3.5 liter To prevent overfilling during oil changes, add 0.5 liter
(0.5 quart) less than capacity shown, start engine, let run
until engine operating temperature is approx. 60 °C (140 °F)
, switch engine off, wait 3 minutes, check dipstick,
fill to full mark as indicated on dipstick (may be more or
less than 0.5 liter (0.5 quart) depending on model).

As for the sludge question, I add Marvel Mystery Oil around 600 miles before i do my oil change. This will clean out the oil pick up screen and oil journals through out the engine, I do this on every oil change and i have over 356,000 miles on my engine. Oil and filter changed every 3,000 miles intervals. Good luck and hope this helps.

My 2002 Bettle TDI has very black oil after 5000 km Why?


City driving is about the hardest thing you can do to engine oil. If your primary driving is city driving it would be advisible to cut the oil change duration by a third to help keep it clean.
