Hi guys hope someone can offer a few suggestions.
I have an Audi a4 2.5tdi v6 163bhp 2003 fwd.
I was blowing oil through the turbo system so a new turbo was purchased and fitted.Problem solved you would think!
How wrong was i! I am no longer blowing oil through but thats where the good news ends. I now have under heavy acceleration thick black smoke and no power at around 3k rpm, and some times it works fine with no smoke. I can leave my foot planted to the floor and it hovers around 3500 rpm for five seconds ish with smoke pouring out the back and then bang it will take off like a rocket and smoke will vanish. Sometimes it does sometimes it doesn't. This inconsistancy is what is concerning me.
Turbo checked its fine EGR is also fine air flow sensor also fine my local garage is scratching its head as am I. The car has a re-map chip connected to ecu etc and has done for two years but my garage say nothing to do with that. Any suggestions cause my courtesy car is a clapped out white peugeot and i cant handle it for much longer! Just to add if i drive it like miss daisy there are no problems and that even when problem is occuring turbo can be heard spinning fine. Help!!!
