1.8t (163) - I think my turbo stopped working.
Hi guys, I'm new to the forum so i thought id start with an easy one!
I have a 2002 A4 1.8t (163) and yesterday i noticed the kick i normally feel at about 2.5k - 3k revs wasn't there. I have been out again today and its still the same.
It runs fine and its still accelerates smoothly, just not as punchy as normal.
I can still hear like a whistling sound which i always assumed was the turbo, that doesnt sound any different in my opinion.
As you may have gathered from the highly technical description of the fault i am no mechanic
Any ideas on the fault and ways to test/fix it??
Hi mate and Welcome!!
First thing Id do is look for any Leaks, Check you boost pipes, could easily worked its way loose somewhere or you have a split pipe somewhere,Its just finding it, I found mine just by luck.
.....Then it could be the Diverter valve split/Broken...but
Thats where id start first with the pipes etc!!
