Question about Volkswagen Golf

2 Answers

Hi, I have a 2005 Audi A3 1.9 tdi and turbo on the car blew up few weeks ago, car had to to be toed home. I got a brand new turbo installed 2 weeks ago and this morning car has gone into limp state and the turbo light has come on the dashboard. I am obviously gutted as I spent nearly a grand buying new turbo and getting it installed. Before I approach the mechanic who had fixed it, I wanted to get some advice on wether it's likely to be his fault that he did not install the turbo properly or the manufacturer's fault. Also since it's a brand new turbo would the mechanic be able to fix it or would I have to buy another part or get it from a manufacturer under warranty. Thanks for your help.

I should think that, if the mechanic did not install the turbo correctly, you would not have been able to drive it for two weeks before something went wrong.. Have him scan the computer to find out what the problem is. Whatever caused the first turbo to blow up is probably causing the current turbo problems. At least this time the computer has prevented a total failure. Give the mechanic a chance to find out what is happening.

Twice in the last 2 weeks the turbo on my 2.0 TDI Audi has shut down while driving. To reset it I have to stop, switch the engine off and then back on again. I took it to the dealer who tells me I need a...


In the most cases for Audi 2.0 TDI the turbocharger is responsible for engine losing power.
The car goes in "limp home" mode!!!
After 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
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 home" 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 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.

Audi A6 3.0 tdi Quattro 2005, glow plug light comes on, limp mode


16619 -Engine boost condition - Limit not reached. Check intake hoses/ connections for leaks. Check Turbo charger waste gate regulating valve/ waste gate working correctly. Must move freely when accelerating, won't achieve full boost if waste gate sticking open. Check Turbo impeller turning freely, oil feed pipe for turbo can get blocked causing impeller to seize. Engine compact, not easy to access these components.

Audi a3 tdi 140 turbo sounds like its whistling for england why?


Turbo vehicles often sound like they are whistling when the turbo spools up because it is sucking in air at a high rate and it makes a bit of a whistling sound. Generally not a problem unless it is a different whistling that you are referring to.

Hi my audi 1.9 tdi is losing power badley the acceliration totaly went its just had a new turbo so i dont think its the turbo. I,ve been out in the car a few times and the problem seems to come and go...


If somebody replaced the turbocharger with a new one, you must check up all command vacuum lines, the entire air intake system (air pressure pipes, intercooler, connections, EGR - throttle vane, ...), and also turbocharger and EGR command solenoid valves (three pieces). Could be also MAF sensor defective! Here you have the vacuum air pipes connection picture for Audi A4 1.9 TDI (AJM engine):
