    i own a 1998 v6 tdi auto recently has started having problems with the turbo it was a intermittant fault one day it would boost and one day it wouldnt boost eventually after a couple of weeks it stopped working completly i had a falut reading of 00575 low or no inlet manifold pressure i found the fault to be the wastegate was stuck shut i took the turbo off and had it looked at and sorted out i refitted it and things were back as normal again after a couple of days we started having problems again with the boost the turbo is spinning and i am getting some boost but not as it should be . on this vnt model of turbo on tick over the wastegate is open if you pull the pipe off the actuator the wastegate closes everything seems very linnier and functioning correctly so i dont think that the turbo is at fault again. my gut feeling is that i think the n75 boost controller also has an intermittant problem but my experience with this engine is limited if anybody has idea what the problem may be i would be grateful if you write back to me, thanks for reading arron

    My N75 stoppedworking somewhat more abruptly than yours but the symptoms are similar. Generally failure to work was accompanied by lots of smoke from the exhaust. Mine was replaced. I'd replaced the MAF by that point too, are you sure yours is OK? I would be very very surprised if ther is a turbo problem. How many miles has it done?

    Check/clean or buy a new MAF!

    Check all those little rubber hose's going to the air pumps on bulk head,I had one come loose and had similar symptoms.

    As a general rule when turbos are dead, they realy are!

    i am getting smoke but i presumed it was because the exsess fuel in the system the maf lookes clean and has a stamp on it so i think it has been exchanged by audi at some point ??????one more question as you look at the engine bay is the boost controler the one on the bulk head or the one just behind the pasenger head light......the reason i ask is because there are boost or vacume pipes running to both.....my car has only done 77000miles when you changed your boost controler did you see a drematic improvement im thinking that maybe my car has never been 100% thanks for the reply
