Do you read your own threads ?

http://www.uk-mkivs.net/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=53119

Or are you just posting for fun?

http://www.uk-mkivs.net/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=49902 If you go to the bottom of this thread which I Suggested in anothe rone of your posts on the same subject you will find a link from 'farmers' post of what the vanes are, and no its not an easy job, and N75 is a one piece sealed solenoid and if its naffed renew it.

Dont get carried away thinking the worst is wrong with your car as to me it looks like you have looked on here briefly and taken all the worst options and they are now wrong with your car, step back, relax and take another look, it might not seem so bad

Yes I read my posts - and NO i dont post for fun...

Having just bought the car - im pretty concerned - as you would be im sure?

Ive done the MAF

Ive fitted a new earth strap

N75 on order coming tomorrow from VW

If that doesnt sort it - im booking it into VW and the garage i bought it from can pay (fair i think - as ive spent over ?100 so far)

How do you stand with used cars? with regard to problems being fixed - anyone more clued up on the legal than me?

Well - What a day its been - I replaced the N75 valve and ''after standing back and having a long look at the problem'' it was still there! LOL

And no matter how long I stood there - it persisted!

After a long chat with a llocal VW specialist and Essex Turbo's - They/We narrowed it down to the one thing i was dreading - THE TURBO....

So ?405.00 plus VAT for the Turbo and ?70 removal and refitting - and all should be better.

Thanks for the advice![:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D]

So did the new turbo solve your probs, why did you not stick a recon unit in or at least get the old turbo cleaned.

Tells you how to clean.

Weeloon, I pm'd a while back with a TDI fault that was proving difficult to solve, well we think we have sorted it, the N75 valve was at fault, new valve=new car. I have a 1.8T and didnt really know too much about tractors, I do now.

Just wanted to say cheers mate, this is what the forum is all about. Top bloke.

Well guys the end of the saga - I HOPE[V]

?700.00 all in for the turbo and fitting etc - and the cars like new.

And b4 you all say how much - I DONT CARE !!!!!!!!!!!!

As.......

Im not paying - lol

The dealer I bought the car from has paid and the car drives like new - it pulls from 1500 rpm whereas b4 it was 2000rpm - its fantastic...Really pleased

Glad the saga is behind me now - Hope my updates have helped others.Thanks[:)]

I thought that but ......didnt bother asking!

I think the Turbo mayve been more, plus a little more with the labour maybe!

I guess they can only estimate the price but untill they get the ID No off the turbo they cant give an exact figure?

Im getting a breakdown at the weekend for the history...so we shall see......

Yeah mate let us know, cos I'm contemplating wether I need a new turbo or not, in the process of doing the usual checks n tests. At least then I know how much to expect.

If i was doing it and I was paying - id buy one off ebay - and do the job myself......

By all means Ill let you know - with regard to the breakdown...

OR

Just a thought try that stuff - Its 2 cans specifically designed for Diesels...u spray into the air intake - remove maf b4! - hold at 200rpm take 4 a spin and then do the same with the 2nd can..sorry to be so vague - but it removes carbon deposits etc - For the cost - id do it before breaking open my piggy bank 4 the turbo!

At the end of the day thats the cause of most of our 'new turbo' problems - carbon gunk - jamming or partially jamming the viens....

Its your call....

reflexgolf... as you said all along my problem was possibly down to the turbo as i thnk both you and i as well as porkster have the same issues!!!

anyways after many new parts my car is having its new turbo fitted under waranty!!! im sooooo glad i got this problem now instead of when the warranty runs out im just hoping it sorts my problem!!!

is there any issues to breaking in a new turbo???

Well im going to do an oil change today as mine is pretty black...just to make sure the turbo is kept sweet initially...

Apart from that i dont think theres much you can do......

I maybe wrong and certainly dont profess to be an expert,

Ask the dealer when you pick it up.....

Ill just take mine easy for say 200 miles......

Then..........[^][^][^][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:D][:O][:O][:O][}:)]
