Bang. Smoke. Grating sound.

    I was just booting my 2005 Sportback (2.0tdi 140 Sport remapped to 180) up a dual carriageway, stretching third gear out, when there was a bang, loss of some power, and loads of white smoke billowing out of the back.

    Pulled over just to check I wasn't on fire!

    Anyone had anything similar? Is it an exhaust problem or a blown turbo or something?

    Thanks

    Around 150 mark. Make sure you get the intercooler and pipework cleaned out. Might want to do an oil change too

    150 your having a laugh that would be mates rates to supply and fit turbo i would think around 500 plus audi prices over a grand
    check for boost pipe coming off and if you have to go new would go hybrid best thing ive ever done

    Exact same thing happened to me.
    The turbo blew and ripped the Boost pipe off, a big bang and loads of white smoke.

    It cost me £850 for a reconditioned turbo and new boost pipe, inc fitting.
    Bought the turbo from Midland Turbo

    have you checked the boost pipes are all on? that can cause a pop and smoke. has to be worth a punt

    All checked. Turbo definitely blown. Confirmed by Mr RAC man. Done a cash deal with the garage for them to take it off my hands as was looking to sell anyway

    midland turbos are very good to recon your old unit they will collect from you.

    turbo techics will collect from you as well
