    Hello to all

    car is a 2006 a3 tdi sport 2.0, recently car has been letting out lots off grey/blue smoke and the boost is really not there! car is on 96k miles could this be the end off the turbo?


    thanks

    also the engine gives a slight judder in gear one. and revs will sometimes stick at 3500? vag com reads clear.

    mmmm if the turbo is the original on 96K then it may well be on its way out.

    Mine went at 70k so yours has done pretty well really. All you can do is take it to be check out by an audi specilist.

    Good luck

    Expect to pay atleast £600 fitted. If you are brave enough to take it on your self you can pick up a recon fro £400 + your old turbo.
