Well finally after 3 long weeks I have my car back.
It was burning oil at idle and at low revs. So it seemed like the valve stem seals had gone. So car got booked in and I told them about it they agreed valve stem seals. So they carried out the work but found they wernt too bad, I bit the bullet and said piston rings then. After an engine rebuild pretty much it still burnt oil!!!!
So this is my school boy error! Start with the easiest and cheapest option first, TURBO!
Got a brand new one, along with new waterpump, cambelt, headset, pickup pipe, valve stem seals, piston rings. £1,722.39.
Bargain!! Lol. Only charged me 10 hours labour too.
Car is pulling better than ever, obviously! And runs like a dream. Just have to keep it below 4k for 500 miles then they are doing oil and filter change free of charge. Then it'll be all good to drive normal.
I did look at the turbo when I picked car up, surprisingly it didn't have any cracks, just extreme play on the shaft inside and the exhaust side looked like it had been sat in the sump for a year!
Anyway happy times that it's back home. Need to get my map looked at as I'm sure it's the culprit!
Only slight issue now is the rough idle, doesn't fluctuate much. Just now and then it'll vibrate the car. So expect spark plugs/gapping. Which ones are best/advised for a 2002 bam. At the moment it has bosche super 4s fitted.
I forgot just how much I LOVE my Audi! Those 500 miles won't take long out every night just admiring its quality!!
