  5. 1.8 Liter Turbo

I'm assuming it's because they don't know enough about this engine, so I'm hoping someone on the forum can help me out. I was recommended to replace the diverter valve (which I did) but it...

    Hello, today we came down off a curb and bottomed out pretty hard. Now our 2002 VW New Beetle Turbo will start, but then turns off after 2-3 seconds.

    Why? What's causing this? So I took my 3 month old 2014 R-Line to the dealer to fix the sunroof that jammed. Supposedly a 2, maybe 3 day replacement. They ended up replacing the ENTIRE sunroof! Essentially the entire top of a '14 Beetle. 17 days later (today) I get it back. Sunroof fixed...

    My turbo recently failed and my mechanic installed a new turbo. Turbo power has returned.. Car is running great, but when I accelerate and get up to about 2800-3000 rpm, I can hear some sort of air intake noise and the turbo seems to cut out somewhat losing power. When I let off the throttle...
