    Hi All

    Some of you may have read that i have been experiencing a problem with my 2.0 TDI going into limp mode. Almost everyone seems to think that it is the turbo vanes sticking. If this is the case, can this be cured by using Mr Muscle oven cleaner as some people have done previously ?

    I have also read that you can use the innotec turbo cleaner. I am imagining this does the same thing as the Mr Muscle cleaner ?

    Has anyone ever tried the Mr Muscle trick on a B7 ?

    Cheers

    I have done it on the EGR valve and manifold so don't see why it wouldn't work with the turbo.

    I heard some using Mr Muscle while cleaning the EGR but I bought some Wynns carb cleaner instead and that worked brilliantly.

    Easy mate. Done it in a couple of hours (not including the Mr. Muscle bit).
    Do a search on Google ad there is some guides o it.

    Just remove the turbo & strip down & clean it out properly as it will happen again, I stripped down a few now & cleaned with a dremel circular wire brush attachment, looks like new, moves like new, but check for any play in the shaft.

    As already said, nothing can beat a proper strip down and clean.

    Here's a turbo i did recently off an A3.

    Don't bother, its temp at best mate, remove turbo, strip, clean & refit is your best prolonged usage path.

    Cheers for the working link, that should come in handy.

    I don't actually need it as I've done it on a couple of cars for other people, but thought it was worth pointing out for anyone looking for a how to.
