Flywheel and turbo on Audi A3 2.0 tdi DSG
My A3 hasn't been starting recently until it has turned over 4/5 times on some occassions, but does start first time on others. This is intermittent and doesn't necessarily happen when it's cold. In fact, it seems to start straight away first thing in the morning and seems to struggle more when I start it later in the day when the engine is warmer. I booked it in for diagnostics at an Audi dealership today and £145 later they tell me it needs a new flywheel at £1200, as it seizes intermittently.
On top of this I have noticed a squeeling noise when accelerating at low revs, which Audi tell me is the turbo as it is leaking some oil. They quoted an additional £1250 to fit a new turbo :faint:
Has anyone had one or both of these problems or can anyone advise whether there is a fix for this, without a new flywheel and turbo having to be fitted.
