Opened lower IC line at hose clamp. About 1 qt of black oil drained into bucket. No signs of moisture. That's all I have done. Im located close to Modesto. I have all paper work that has been done, but purchased from private, who purchased from Dealer. I will call local vw and see if they cover?

Shouldn't matter where you purchased from, the extended emissions warranty is transferable to subsequent owners as long as the fix was done.

If local dealer waffles, you need to reach out to corporate. VWoA should make sure to cover it.

Make sure you have the silver sticker on the bottom of the hood indicating the fix was done.

X3 What Metal Man said...

For a measly $100, we do a pre-purchase inspection. It is very seldom that we don't find WAY more than $100 wrong with the vehicle.

More than likely this is something that would have likely shown up with inspection. We have found this issue with turbo on one of the re-released cars. Unfortunately, we know darn well that that particular car was given it's check list. They checked everything on the list and then went to find the car the check list belonged to... Oh yeah, that helps.

To protect yourself, you had better be able to show oil change, with the correct oil. Otherwise, you could be on the hook for repairs. For future reference, when a turbo pops, you STOP, QUICKLY. DO NOT START UNTIL CONFIRMED and REPAIRED. You can wreck the rest of the engine by running it out of oil.

Thanks for everyone's comments and advice.
I did take to VW service and it was determined there was evidence that the turbo went out and then had internal damage, bending rods in #2 and #3 hole. I was surprised to hear that the first steps from service tech was to install 3 quarts of oil and try and start. Then open glow plugs to see if oil pumped out? I told them that I had already discovered oil in lower IC line, but was told that was the procedure to follow from VW.
After giving them service records and basic maintaince records, showing receipts of oil and filters from fuel and air, they told me that I was indeed covered through the emissions warranty that went with this car until 2023 or 180k.
VW is providing a new long block and Turbo. Also gave me a loaner 2019 Jetta to use until all work is completed!
Today was first day I drove to work in the Jetta. Was very impressed with the comfort, power and fuel mileage from that little turbo gas 1.4. Appears that it may get better than 40 mpg on freeway!

That is about the best outcome for your situation.

Agreed, that's a good ending to what started out as a sad, scary story.

All the best.
