Question about 2003 Audi A4 Cabriolet
Hi i have 02 audi a4 slimline. on motorway going 70 mph and to past a car dropped it down to fourth gear probly hit 90mph. Drove for a further hour and a half, and hear a bang under car. car started to loose power. was drivable but hissing noise coming out of it when accelerating. Black smoke coming out of it also. Not a great amount. Feels like turbo not kicking in. Would this be that the turbo has blown of maybe burst pipe or something. If anyone can share a light on this i would be very greatful. Cheers
You have blown a turbo charge pipe somewhere, check all hoses...Once this happens the car will begin to run very rich, as evidenced by the black smoke. Do not continue to drive like this, as the raw unburned fuel in the exhaust will clog the catalysts and that can be very expensive.

It isnt piping, The external controller for your internal wastegate is blown, Since the boost can escape or isnt being held, your car should be in safe mode, usually sounds like turbo is starting to spool then stops, There isnt supposed to be an aftermarket diaphram available for the K03 but i hvae seen them on ebay. If the wastegate itself is still intact then replacing the controller and clearing the maf/o2 codes along with that should get you out of safe mose and solve the problem. If u can find an aftermarket wastegate controller, one from a 300zx works and improves response a bit.
