    Exclamation A3 2.0 TDI TURBO PROBLEMS, CAN ANYONE HELP?

    i know this topic has been mentioned before ive searched the threads but cant find a definite answer to my problem,

    every time the turbo kicks in it whines on the way down? kinda like a duck sound

    no engine management light has come on and sometimes the turbo keeps cutting out like there aint enough air or somet getting to
    it?

    is it defo the turbo need replacing or is there any other checks i can do on it

    Yes that will work with yours, but many have clogged veins = Sticking actuator. That turbo is sold with no warranty and unless you collect/try in person you won't know if knackered till you already have it. Best getting a known good one or recon unit.
