    2004 1.8T cabrio blown turbo

    My 2004 A4 1.8T cabrio has blown a turbo after only 70000 miles. Is this a common problem or have I just been unlucky. I've only had the car 5 months

    Thanks for this but as I've only had the car 5 months, I have no idea how it was driven or looked after before. I had a Saab 9 3 with almost 200,000 miles on it and the turbo was fine. Maybe I was being naive to expect the same with this car

    make sure you change the oil pump strainer and get the sump inspected at the same time,

    Thanks for the hints guys. I am replacing all the pipework as I've heard they're prone to gungeing up but I didn't know about the oil pump strainer
