im a long time VAG enthusiast thats is starting to lose the wil....
Less then 6 months ago i had a preventative oil pump change as i have the dreaded BLE coded diesel engine.
£2.5k later with a new Audi supplied oil pump, crank shaft seal, new cambelt , serviced etc, the cat is making a horrendous turbo noise.
between 1500-2000 revs in any gear it seems to dump the boost resulting in a cha cha cha chuffing noise like ivan the engine!, ive read various things about flutter dump and chatter etc.
My local indie couldnt hear it!! think they may have no eardrums, another indie said they'd look at it but their further away. Tomorrow its going back to bosch garage that fitted the oil pump to be looked at under the years warrenty - fairly sure they will say its nowt to do with work they did.
i dont want to take it back there as it was in for 6 weeks doing the pump due to constant issues with supplies and having a failure of the first pump they fitted because a bolt was not tight inside when supplied by Audi
Does anyone have experience of this turbo noise? couyld it be connected to the oil pump?,
can i just clean turbo somehow and sell it?
its running fine otherwise , smooth and still powerful, just been to dorset with no probs
im thinking this car is doomed , also broke windscreen the other day but thats another story....
any help or reassurance appreciated, thanks phil
