I didn't replace my turbo when they said and eventually the turbo did fail. Since the turbo is oil cooled all the oil from the engine burned through the broken seals of my turbo and out through the catalytic converter causing it to clog. My turbo cost $1100CDN Labor was $800. And a new catalytic was $900 + tax. Oh for got to mention the burning oil through the exhaust burned out two sensors, O2 and MAF so add another $400 for that and labor to install it.

CHANGE IT NOW!!!!!

If the turbo is truly failing, then it could put metal pieces through the engine if it broke apart. Usually when a turbo fails, it's the bearings wearing out, and the turbo starts making a "dentist's drill" sound when the car accelerates. $1500 sounds pretty steep but if it's at a dealership, I can see where it would cost that much. A better bet is an independent European car specialist - usually they'll cost significantly less. Also, you can source a turbo on your own (you'd be looking for a K03s turbo) and give it to the mechanic to install, to save even more.

If you're in New York State, I could do the job in my garage for you. I can source the turbo and do the work here.

Where is the turbine speed sensor located on a 2002 vw Passat 2.8 l 2 wheel drive


The 2.8 is not a turbo charged engine, so would not have a turbine speed sensor. The 1.8 or 2.0 were turbo charged.

VW Transporter, wastegate for turbo is seized, no power at all. can it be freed up, guy fixing it reckons it's abig job to get to it and if it can't be freed up it will be a waste of time?


I am told once seized it's toast. The waste gate and turbo are 1 piece and repair is $1,500. T.D.I.'s are cheap to drive until they have a mechancial problem.

As a protest I WILL NOT take my Jetta to a VW dealer. I go to local garage at half the price.

I have problems with the turbo of my Passat 2002 TDI Sometimes it stops working other times it works perfectly. What factors affect the turbo performance. Is the oil type, or coolant a factor?


The wastegate controls the operation of the turbo, it directs exhaust pressure to the turbo, If it does not function properly the turbo will act erratically

VW Passat turbo broken


Pricing for the replacement will vary widely based on who does the work, but you'll typically find better prices at an independent shop than at a dealership. When you choose an indie shop though, make SURE they're a Euro specialist. You honestly don't want a guy working on your high-tech turbo engine when he spends his days wrenching on Mustangs and Chevy trucks. As for whether you have to do it - yes you do. The turbo is an integral part of the car and the car won't run well at all (and will likely degrade further) if you don't fix it.
