Having problems with VW touran turbo diesel - turbo failed

Customer Question

Having problems with VW touran turbo diesel - turbo failed and has been replaced. Worked ok for 3weeks - now there is no turbo power boost - car drives but very poor acceleration. Is the turbo gone again or has the work done resulted in further trouble. Car only 72km / 3years old 1.9 TDi

Hi DW,


Have you seen your Check Engine light on lately? If so, have you attempted to retrieve codes?


Also, you use Bio-Diesel currently? Have you ever?

Into local garage to check codes today. Orange "low oil warning??" light came on yesterday but oil level checked and appears ok. Some black smoke from exhaust noted on high rev testing.

Have never used bio-diesel ever.

OK good. Do not use bio-diesel. Has caused lots of 1.9 TDI problems... Thanks!
