    New Audi a3 1.8T Member +Turbo Problems Help..

    Hi guys im new here, Bought a 2001 Audi a3 1.8T. The car has been in the family many years so has been passed down.

    Recently ive come across what could be the turbo failing. I have it booked in at a garage thursday, but thought id get a little info from thoughs who know what there talking about.

    The car idles below 1000 rpm and feels like its about to stall.

    Once moveing the car is jerky and feels like its starved of petrol.

    Strugles to push into the turbo rev range 3000rpm.

    and there is a grinding noise that keeps apearing.

    Any help would be very appreciated.

    Thanks Jack.
