Hi guys, I have a t4 1.9td and think the turbo has blown.
I was driving for about 50 miles with no issue when I picked up on a rattle that sounded like tappet noise. This progressed to something akin to misfiring and running on three cylinders. Pulled onto site about half a mile later and let everything settle. Religiously check oil and water on all my vehicles weekly and surprised to find the dipstick totally dry. Filled with oil, started up and watched it all get blown out the exhaust. Recovered home, happy not.

I'm not good with the spanners so it will be going to a local garge when i have collected replacements.

Questions;

am I looking for a garret T15? Research shows that's the one.

If the engine is dead, I need suitable engine codes for a direct swap. Can't look into tdi swaps as I need this up and running ASAP. It's my work vehicle. Any help is appreciated. Cheers.

And it's definitely not timing belt issue as I've already had the crank nose drilled with roll pins, new stretch bolt, etc. don't have much love for t4s at the moment.
