What kind of hydraulic fluid does my pump for the top need in my convertible 2001 saab 93 2.0l turbo just want to know that thanks


This information will be available from a dealer service centre but in the absence of information from them any hydraulic oil should be ok to use . Try to get the correct oil first but oil used in the power steering would be ok as it is a high pressure ,high temperature oil. If it is too thin then there are specific hydraulic oils that could be used. and obtainable from any oil distribution centre.

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 2001 audi a4..When I crank it up the turbo makes a awful screaming sound for 2 to 3 minutes then it stops.How can I fix it?


you have a worn turbo bearing.I would get a replacment turbo before you do any damage.When you start the engine the bearings in the turbo are dry of oil.Has you start the engine the oil will reach the bearings and the noise will apear to go away.

2001 Volvo s40 oil leaking in turbo, smokes white smoke and turbo not kicking in. I have a new head, timing belt waterpump, oxygen sens. valve job, cam pulley all changed. It is still smoking and no turbo....


Water in combustion chamber makes white smoke--suspect that the head gasket is leaking water into the chamber. If oil leaking around turbo, it may have a bad bearing and bad oil seal. Check waste gate valve and control.

2001 Volvo S40 1.9T - oil leaking into turbo


It's very common for the turbo return line seal to leak. That is what I would check first, when it leaks, it will spray oil all over the turbo lines and the rear of the engine.

2001 s40 volvo diesel .. turbo oil leak ??


Could be the Turbo oil return pipe seal, its a cheap about $10 but you need to get to the pipe.
Its just a bit tricky to reach and you will need the gasket to go on the other end of the pipe when you take it off.
Its a well know fault check the Volvo Forums web site.
