I bought a 2006 GLI back in May. Pacakge #2, 73500 miles when I bought it. It was not Certified, but had a 3K dealer warranty, paid 12K out the door. It's very clean, and seemed to run great at the time,
I'm having a problem still, and need some advice on where to start looking myself, or at least a start to argue with the dealer about, first the history:
From day one, whenever i accelerate hard i pretty big cloud of white-ish smoke , I'm talking over 4500 RPMS or so, if I don't accelerate hard, the car is fine, no smoke, runs perfect.
1 In about 1300 miles it used 4 quarts of oil, took it to the dealer and they replaced the valve cover gasket, camshaft, cam follower and high pressure fuel pump.
2. Still used 3.5 quarts in the next 1K miles, back to the dealer and they replaced the turbo drain pipe between the turbo and intercooler saying it was clogged. Up until this repair the CEL would blink yellow when the car smoked, under hard acceleration.
3. Still used 3 quarts of oil in another 1K or so, took it back again and they did a compression test,
and replaced the turbo charger and exhaust manifold with a rebuilt, 12K warranty. I'm not sure if the diverter valve was replaced, I'm trying to find that out the dealer is an hour away and it's next to impossible for me to make calls during the day (I work in a call center, no cells out of your pocket)
NOW, the oil consumption has pretty much stopped, in 300 miles or so I noticed no consumption, BUT I have a new problem, sort of. The day after I picked up the car, when pulling out into traffic I took off pretty quick, there was a weird 'clattering sound' and a cloud of white smoke again. NOW intermittently, when I accelerate hard I seem to get a 'drop' in power that returns to normal when I shift or ease off the gas (it's a 6 speed manual). NO CEL or any other lights, and it doesn't happen every time.
I've skimmed the forums for the past few days, and I am going to be taking the car back to the dealer, I would just like some ideas......fire away! And thanks.
