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.

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.

The mechanic says i need a new lower intake gasket (at a cost of $1500 CDN) - can i just keep replacing the coolant as needed or is the vehicle (2002 Montana) unsafe to drive? thanks


First off, no you cannot just keep replacing the coolant. If coolant enters the engine lubrication system it will destroy the engine. You must have this repaired. But $1,500 is an outrageous charge for this repair. Find you another honest mechanic to repair this vehicle. This mechanic is ripping you off.

Loss of power noisy engine turbo does not come in on a 19 tdi volkswagon sharan


Well,

The turbo bearing is gone. The turbo is not able to create enough boost. A local mechanic is going to have to change out the turbo. This is an expensive repair.

Good luck

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.
