well im not having any luck at the minute.....started the car up this morning, and heard a small pop, but the revs on the car had evened out and stopped fluctuating up and down, thought thats odd, opened up the bonnet and looked for any boost hoses popped off or similar, nothing looked out of place except for somehow spotting there was a connection under the block on the back side come loose?! (covered in a heatproof typoe foil? so connected that back up, started the engine and saw smoke from the exhaust, went round the back to check it out and theres a puddle of oil on my driveway, and oil and smoke coming from the exhaust.......is that my headgasket or turbo? think i might just buy a second hand engine tbh, as this ones a 200 thou engine, whats peoples opinion? roughly what cost am i looking at for an engine with a turbo? thanks for any replys....looks like my wallets gonna take a beating thats for sure
also anyone got an idea how i can find out what engines in my a3?
car is an a3 1.8t sport 1998 reg?! thanks again, Dan
