problems with 2.5tdi

    My faithfull 2.5tdi quattro is starting to show a few problems. In low gears (especially 2nd) when the revs are about 2k you can't hold a constant speed, the revs and the speed fluctuate up and down slightly. Does this mean there is a problem with the turbo? Got a few jobs to do on it including cleaning the egr valve and in the inlet maniflod.
    Also got some oil spray around the drivers side intercooler and pipework so will be looking into maybe a split hose when I get the front bumper off
    Any thoughts much appreciated

    Edit: its also due a service and timing belt change very soon

    Thanks for your reply Chris.
    Will send you a pm when I get a minute, got the car in bits atm.
    Do you think the speed/rev problem about 2k revs will be anything easy to fix/diagnose (MAF? engine breather? EGR? etc...)
