Could be a turbo seal. Occasionally, that problem makes the engien self destruct! You are lucky!

Turbo seal fix will be expensive in labour. Any decent VAG indy will be able to sort it.

Make sure you use the right VW oil as well.

It is possible that you put the wrong oil in the car, VAG diesels make light work of the wrong oils! Service stations don't usually have the right oil.

When was the last service?

Just asking...

is it possible that the engine will ruin if wrong oil is placed in the said car? I had the same problem and still don't know if this has caused the problem...

With the wrong oil, the engine can ruin itself. The turbo will eat the oil, the seals can deteriorate and the oil can 'perish' under the battering that modern diesels give them.

VW verified oils are the only way to go.
