Name isXXXXX goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,Have the intercooler checked for blockage if fitted then get back to me .
Is there oil in the turbo and on the inside of the hose ,
Is the hose old , soft and rubbery .Rgds Greg.
I will ask about the Intercooler to be checked for blockage. Will check about oil on turbo also. I saw the hose did not see oil. I had a completely new hose fitted which was a genuine VW part so no the hose was not soft and rubbery. The 2nd section of the pipe that blew out was exactly the same type of cut that the first one exhibited. Very strange. I will get back to you when I have more facts.
It would appear it had something to do with GER or some letters like that and the valves were extremely dirty, hopefully thats the problem solved. I hope the problem is solved now, many thanks for your suggestions. I have been advised to put Diptane into the tank now to clean the thing out so hopefully this will complete the task. When I got the car back yesterday, it is sounding very good and appears to be well again. Bringing it for a 150 mile journey today so hopefully all will be well. I dont wish to have a monthly account with Ask the Mechanic as I intend this to be a once off enquiry. Do I have to get back to this separately.
