    TURBO: 2012-2014 Passat turbo failures [discussion thread]

    2014 follows 2012 I posted the parameters to the tally location. Like the 2012 before my 2014 had to have its turbo replaced. Of note the whine was slight - discounted by local dealer - but consumption of oil (2.5qt over 2000mi this followed 1/2qt for the 5000 mi prior) was notable symptom...

    TURBO: 2012-2014 Passat turbo failures [discussion thread]

    I had a turbo failure last year and want to check to see if the model is the latest (and assumed greatest) or otherwise. Pardon the questions but: 1) Can the turbo identification plate be seen without removing other engine components; and 2) If yes where can it be found?

    TURBO: 2012-2014 Passat turbo failures [discussion thread]

    It took a week - mostly to get the parts. Findings: Impeller fins deformed on exhaust side. Impeller touching housing on intake from excessive play. Turbo replaced. The dealer provided a 2013 w/2.5L Passat as loaner; while thankful for it I'm glad to have the TDI back.
