I need some time before I can take the car out of service to work on the Turbo Unit on my 2003 B5.5 Passat 1.8
Started to leak oil into the plastic tubes to the inter-cooler.
It would allow me to use the car until I can find a "window" to take the Turbo Unit itself and see if I can rebuild it myself.
I got the car at a high used price from my ex just to help. But as the old saying goes: " There is no good deed that can go unpunished" I have been pumping money and time into this car since I got it three years ago. No bad because I love the car, and I have mainly paid only for parts. My labor I consider it free since I am now retired.
I can do precision work and takes me lots of time, but I have more of that then bread to pay for repairs. Besides, I have done work on my own cars for 66 years.
My first thought would be to plug the oil supply and return lines to/from the Turbo and disable the signal that gets the Turbo to start pumping air. I assume that without oil supply also the Turbo shaft should be "locked" so no further damage to the unit occurs and allows for further rebuilding.
Any ideas if at all possible directions and how to disable the Turbo (what to do that can be reversed later with maybe only minor damage) and also stopping the Turbo rotor from destroying itself if running without oil?
I can happily put up without the pep of the turbo for a while if this is possible.
I thank in advance for any pointers or other solutions to the above.
