    Unhappy Turbo or even more has broken

    Hi all,

    I have a A4 TDI 140 S-Line 2006 which I've had from new and today think the turbo has gone on 94K miles

    I had a oil pressure sensor warning and carried on driving for 1/4 until safe to pull over.
    Turned the car off and on again and it cleared. Then came back on.

    I pulled away and had no power, so pulled over again and opened bonnet with engine going and could hear noises around the turbo area. I was 1/4 from Audi main dealer so drove the car into dealer and 100 yards before that white smoke flying out the back.

    Been told its more than likely the turbo and its Ł1400 for turbo and Ł300 to fit = total Ł1700

    Now I have phoned around and can get another replacement turbo, exchange unit for Ł400 or a brand new turbo for Ł600.

    These turbos come with 12 months warrantly and Audi will fit, total would be more around Ł1k

    Anyone any views on all this please

    Many thanks

    Gutted audi owner 8(

    My turbo went last week, cost me €1400 for a new one fitted with my indy. He also checked my oil pump in case that was the reason why my turbo failed. The pump and hex shaft were fine, but I didn't get a low oil pressure light, I'd want that checked out because a lack of oil may have caused other damage to the engine.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Audi have the car at present and hopefully will have some good news early next week.

    Can a turbo just give way or does something else happen to cause the turbo failure.

    Its worrying that the oil pressure warning came on about 30 seconds before the turbo failed? Could that be something else?

    Where does the oil pump live? Off the cambelt drive ? That was replaced by audi last year

    Depends how bad the turbo is damaged. I blew my no 1 turbo on the supra and it hit no 2 and shattered it. It blew bits through the engine. Replacement engine needed

    If its just broken and stayed in place you might be ok...
