    Engine oil in my brake booster? Check valve or vac pump?

    There should not be oil in the vacuum lines. Vacuum pump is most likely culprit.

    Test injection pump outside of car?

    Seal all the open connections except one. Apply air pressure or vacuum. See if it holds. no idea how much air or vacuum to apply.

    Once you rule out the basic oil pressure reporting devices, you may want to check the rod and crank bearings.

    How to diagnose actuator vs turbo on my ALH 1.9?

    You definitely want to rule out a bad actuator, but a bad actuator doesn't normally result in smoke.

    2014 passat tdi Ckra coolant loss

    Stubble and at loss,

    Common mistake. Look harder at the diagnostic code for the MAF. Something, could be simple, like vacuum tubes, is creating the error. Another common thing is the injector wire harness. Also loose pipes, the big ones.

    It is possible the wires are tofued. Check the bundle what goes under the battery, several of those devices are wired thru that bundle. Look elsewhere for damage. If wires/connectors are good, you may need the pump rebuild$$$

    Boost Leak Riddle...

    Had this happen as well. Daughter raked a pavement edge, ripped a hole in the pan, got on the freeway. It was winter. Turbo survived, but crank and rod bearings spun, oil pressure no good, light on. But we never got any unusual noise. If it ran without oil for any length of time, you may want to...

    2001 beetle

    The answer is no, and even with the VCDS, you can't be sure. Sometimes the tuner will add a note, sometimes not.

    Secure that pipe, it could be the source of your power issue. If the hood fabric is catching the dipstick, remove it. Do the vacuum tubes one at a time, can't go wrong. carries some colors.
