Hi , Mobile 1 makes a synthetic European formula that would be good, 0-40w or 5-30w about $9 a quart.

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

Passat 1.8t turbo problem


A bearing going bad. Do you follow turbo shut down procedures? If you don't have time to do this then my suggestion is installing a turbo timer to do this automatically. When you drive the car specially a high speed and need to shut down the engine is the worse thing you can do to your turbo. The impeller spins double the speed of sound and takes quite a while to slow down specially when you shut down the engine. At the same time it is shut down, oil pressure is no longer provided by the oil pump and cooking from extremely hot turbo assembly. The end product is oil carbonizing and clogging moving parts. The term is called coking. A turbo timer will keep your engine running when you remove the key from ignition and lock the vehicle for a programmable amount of time. This will help the turbo to spin dow while lowering the temperature critical for a longer servie life of your turbo charger.

I just purchased a 2004 Audi A6 with 2.7 turbo engine with 65000 miles. . The oil guage shows in the low range. {150) The warning light is not on. Is this normal? or could this be a future problem?


Oil is cheaper than metal.Turbo motors run a lot hotter than non-turbo motors and need more frequent oil changes.1st thing to do would be get the oil changed with a good quality oil and also do the filter.Hope this helps

Not enough oil pressure to run turbo keeps burning it out 99 passat 1.8


Oil pressure at idle should be 2 bar and at 2000 rpm 3 - 4.5 bar. Verify the engine oil pressure.

The 1.8t engines have problems with sludge because of the turbo scorching the oil. If engine oil pressure is good you may want to clean or replace the oil supply and return lines and the turbo.
