check for any oil leaks at gaskets and check exhaust for blue smoke.IT may be a failing turbo. The great wall car is china made and fortunately the engines are off the shelf units from other motor companies such as Mitsubishi. You may have to enquire as to how you would get warranty. if the dealer closed up. Ask on line from the importer of the car or from the manufacturer them selves. I would be checking for oil inside the turbo shells as to exhaust seal or inlet seal as the turbo would be the obvious failure if it is shut down to soon. If you can establish the maker of the engine then spares will be available from a dealer service spares that sells that engine
The turbocharger is normally lubricated by the engine oil. That is why it is imperative to do oil changes on turbo engine at 3000 miles rather than the recommended 6000 for normal engines, and that you use a good quality oil without adding any extra additives. There are oils marked for turbo engines, but make sure it is one backed and marketed by a reputable oil/petroleum company.
A bearing going bad. Do you follow turbo shut down procedures? If you don't have time to do this then my suggestion is installing a turbo timer to do this automatically. When you drive the car specially a high speed and need to shut down the engine is the worse thing you can do to your turbo. The impeller spins double the speed of sound and takes quite a while to slow down specially when you shut down the engine. At the same time it is shut down, oil pressure is no longer provided by the oil pump and cooking from extremely hot turbo assembly. The end product is oil carbonizing and clogging moving parts. The term is called coking. A turbo timer will keep your engine running when you remove the key from ignition and lock the vehicle for a programmable amount of time. This will help the turbo to spin dow while lowering the temperature critical for a longer servie life of your turbo charger.

hi what was the code (p 0244)sounds like you need to replace the the turbo wastegate valve .sounds to me like its overboosting as if the charge from the turbo gets too hot the engine will misfire thus causing damage to engine ,the waste gate valve is there to prevent over pressurisation
Most likely yes, but you may want to investigate whether a second-hand turbo is a better option price-wise. I don't know what the TDI turbos sell for, but on the gas engines, the stock K03 turbos only go for a couple hundred dollars (or less) used, with no endplay. It may be less hassle to just source a replacement in order to get your car back on the road. You could then have your turbo rebuilt at your leisure and keep it as a spare.
