There are several things to look for, especially if there was no leak before you worked on it. If the seal is a rubber O-ring, it could have slipped out of the groove and gotten pinched. If the seal is a gasket, a gasket sealer made for water pumps and thermostat housings should be used. The bolts may not be tightened properly, or a bolt may have gotten cross threaded, which would prevent the housing from being tightened down sufficiently. Or there could be debris, or old gasket material between the thermostat housing and the engine.

Hi I have an 08 vw jetta 125 tsi the turbo doesn't


I would check the pressure blow off valve to see if it is stuck partially open. check hoses for holes or leaks where clamped. Also if you have a inter cooler for this turbo check it for cracks or leaks a pressure check of air to the cooler then spray with soapy solution to look for bubbles no bubbles after cooler good.

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.

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


Hallo
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
