Its all about the amount of psi you set it to. So yes you can but dont try to kill it by setting the boost up high.

2004 jetta 1.8 turbo doesnt seem to be kicking in and the engine doesn't have much power. possible causes?


Have the car scanned for fault codes. A power loss in a turbo motor can be caused by simple vacuum leaks. You can check for loose piping and clamps. There are various components in that car that could cause such a problem. These include the turbocharger itself, the turbo boost (N75) valve, wastegate and its linkage, the car's ECU, maybe even a non turbo fault like a clogged catalytic converter or vehicle misfire.

My 04 VW Jetta blew thick white smoke from tailpipe after freeway drive. No indicator lights came on, all oil leaked out (after smoke started)... is this engine or could it be just the turbos? Right...


A new turbo charger is about $340, but you can buy the bearings and seals and rebuilt if yourself for about $100

It is not hard, and it does not take long to do.

I normally do not bother with synthetic, but with a turbo charger, it might be worth it. What really seems to ruin turbo chargers the most is not letting them cool off before parking.
Once you turn off the engine, there is no longer any cooling, so the build up heat will burn up the oil and seals.
Run the engine for at least 5 minutes below turbo levels, before shutting down the engine.

Looking for instail instruction to put my turbo kit on my scion tc i am tech ive workt on cars all my life but have never done a turbo kit


Before you start on your turbo kit, you need to make sure you can tune your PCM for the added turbo kit and that you have an fuel system to support the extra boost.
The turbo kit installation is the easy part, having the fuel system and PCM program is another. Not having the right program will cause you an expensive project, keep me posted, be glad to help you get your turbo installed without additional expensive cost.
Thank you for using fixya and post me back.

Exhaust system light is on - 2006 Jetta


What you here running after you shut your car off is just your exhaust fan. Your turbo will not continue to run. As for the oil change effecting the exhaust this may be an issue. IF they actually drained the regular oil and then put synthetic then you should be ok. But if they just put more in on top then they may have messed up your Cat converter...good luck with everything

Check engine light on came on in my 2005 VW Jetta TDI. Pulled code using auto parts store code reader and the only fault noted was ''turbocharger boost control position sensor circuit low''. Can you tell...


There may be a possiblity of doing damage to the turbo if you continue to drive it this way. I would recommend either taking it to the dealer or a reputable repair shop in your area to have this repaired as soon as possible, as to not risk damaging the turbo. Hope this helps.
