just thought i would share my grief so far with my car and try to get some feedback from you guys in the know .....
i have a 03 zaffy gsi with 73k on clock, full s/h recent service etc ...
i have only had the car 3 months now and had nothing but problems, car drove 190 miles home when i purchased the car gr8 then it went tits up after that.
the car has been using loads of oil and holding back on boost but no smoke from zorst so was told it was the turbo, got a s/hand vxr turbo and made no difference. Then told there looks to be contamination in water / oil, so had head skimmed and new water pump gaskets and cambelt change. Got car back and still same .... so now i have spent nearly £900 chasing problem and still no better also changed AFM and BCS and Coilpack !!
Now car is chucking out blue smoke for fun when first started in morning and also when driving, but does tend to dissapear alittle when warm but lots when on hard acceleration, also started to run on 3 cylinders , and spark plug 3 had lots of oil on end, so got new plug and ran on 4 again, so taken car back to garage , who now say must be piston ring seals .... and now taking engine apart again , but they did a compression test first and results were 169 171 171 170 , but they still reckon seals have gone and i need to pay for extra work. Does this all sound right ?
any help would be gr8 guys as i this is getting a nightmare !!
