Question about 2005 Volkswagen Golf

Open Question

My Seat Toledo 1'9 TDI 55 reg has a turbo oil seal leak. My sister is writing this for me as i don't understand mechanics. It has already had two oil seals replaced and as far as i know this is from a bottom pipe on the turbo.The mechanic says if this one leaks again then it will be £1000 for a new turbo.This is a slight leak.Can someone tell me if this is a waste of money please. My sister thinks there must be a simple fix. Could it be that the oil seal is not being seated correctly? many thanks

SOURCE: diesel turbo with no power at low revs

this tells me that the injector timing is off just a bit or you may have a weak injector all together.

SOURCE: Can I replace the oil cooler seals on 1980 Vanagon w/ engine in?

I hate to rub salt in your wounds but after all your effort the time spent you could have the engine back in by now.
All the tin ware needs to be lifted well clear as you know the oil cooler is upright in the path of the Rotor/fan, this also needs to be raised well clear as the cooler needs to be taken off completely, you will want to clean surfaces and internals won't you?
So all shrouds to bodywork off,(Engine bay) throttle cable disconnected, clutch cable disconnected your generator wires off and finally fuel pipe. 4 bolts on gearbox bell housing and slide engine out or down for clearance on trolley jack.
All the above relates to a TypeII Split or bay window with stock engine, Not suitcase or injection.
Good Luck!

firts you will have to clean off the lower portion of the motor and transmission then i would put a clean peice of cardboard so you can see if you can isolate the location of the fluid migh also want to check all your fluids to see which one is low in oeder to determine whats leaking.then you can isolate the location then you can have it repaired

Oil leaking around turbo on 2000 jetta

If you are getting boost, your turbo is likely not blown. There is a banjo bolt connection for the turbo oil. If it has loosened, then it would be leaking oil on the outside of the turbo. A blown turbo leaks on the inside (I believe, though not positive).

I don't have a TDI, but have a VW 1.8T with a turbo I recently replaced.

There is really nothing to fix other than to replace the turbo. It is not a tough job (at least the 1.8T wasn't) though it took 11 hours to complete. So you should try to get the oil leak fixed (near too much heat to ignore) but should likely only need to replace if it's not providing boost, or making strange sounds.

Airbag light on seat toledo tdi, how do i fix myself

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, SRS and BCM faults) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

I have gunge under the oil cap of my toleda stylance 2005

check the dipstick for the same, if it looks like cottage cheese with oil on it then you are getting coolant in the oil. Many possible answers here: cracked head or block, warped head, bad head gasket. there is also just condensation that too many short trips didn't evaporate.
You don't want to ignore the leak if there is one.

Where does one investigate oil consumption in a 1.8 liter turbo engine in a 2001 vw golf using 1-quart every 50 to 100 miles driven, no tail pipe smoke and no leakes on drive way when parked overnight. I...

If you don't drive this little beast hard the oil could be migrating to the charge pipes and inter cooler.

Usually the turbo is likely culprit when oil consumption reaches those levels. Pull the spark plugs to see if the tips are loading up with carbon deposits.

You can pull the lower hose of the inter cooler...drivers side under the bumper....and see if oil pours out. If so the turbo is shot.

Another way oil is consumed is valve stem seals allowing oil down the intake valve guides. Cure is a set of valve stem seals.

I have a 2002 VW Jetta TDI and am problems with turbo.

1.Disconect lower hose from intercooler and oil (from 0,1 liter or more) (sometimes 1-2 liters) comes out, you should not drive it.(car had probably loose power) Change the turbine, oil and oil filter. do not forget to disconect lower hose and let oil drain out. Otherwise when new turbine is instald, the air flow will **** this oil inside the engine and distroy it.
2.your car is not designed to run without turbine and will not work like normal disel.(SDI).
hope it helps
