Loss of turbo.


Recommended Posts

When joining the mototway on Saturday i had to speed up and rev it hard

to join the flowing traffic.I then noticed i had lost the Turbo.No warning lights came on the dash.

As i came off at the next junction the traffic lights were on red so i turned the ignition off and back on .

The turbo came back as normal.The car is a 1997 TDI Passat SE 163,000miles

I have searched the older threads but no joy.

Hoping you can help

Regards KIDDA.

Classic sign of overboost condition causing the ecu to shut that side of things down to eliminate further damage.Thats basically itin a nut shell without me going on the whys and where fores i should just cut and paste as i have posted a great deal on this subject.+++ Have a flick through and welcome to TSN+++++++++

New turbo or clean it using this site if you are of technical mind and know what you are doing.......Innotec Supplies Ltd. - Turbo Clean Set

Have never used it but heard its good.

I strip and clean the turbos personally, on the side for people for a fee with 100% success rate so far and have been doing so for a long time.
