    Oil leak at turbo

    I have a 98 aeb 1.8. I went for a drive today and noticed I could hear my turbo waste gate more than normal so I knew something was wrong. I popped the hood open to see what was up to find a puddle of oil under my turbo. I looked around and found that the oil line on top of the tur I was loose. I tightened it but still leaks a bit. I took it off and inspected it before I tightened it and didn't see of there was an oring on the line. Is there an oring? Not from the fitting to the turbo but the line to the fitting. Or an I going to need a hole new damn line:/

    You talking about this line?: Audi B5 A4 Quattro 1.8T > Engine > Turbo > Oil Lines > ES#3119 Oil Supply Line For Turbocharger - 058145778

    If that is leaking at all you need to check the turbo and the feed line for stripped threads. Do not run you car with this having a bad seal! You'll smoke the turbo.

    It is a flare nut style fitting same as the brake line there is no O- ring in it. You could maybe try to wrap the flare in the line with a Teflon tape it would help seal the joint.
