:???: Help! I was visiting my friend this weekend and she had me listen to her passat, when you let off the gas while driving it makes spinning noise off throttle. It sounds like that damn eclipse from F&F but I know what a turbo sounds like and my 2003 doesnt make this sound. It does not do it while in park when the engine is reved. Now, Here is my hypothesis, The bearings in the turbo are going. I belive this is a result of the VW dealer not putting oil back in her car after an oil change and that she possibly burned out the turbo or damaged it while driving it without oil. I have been thinking that it could be her diverter valve going but I have no idea what that would sound like. So does anyone have ideas? she has a 99 with 50,000 miles. The VW dealer said it was fluid or some BS. Also does anyone know of a good tuner/responciple dealer in the Raleigh/Durham NC area?
