TDI Motor

  So I had the Jetta into the shop for the recall.  Almost 200K on the engine and running great.   The DAY after I get it home,  I am getting on the interstate and "Booof".   Loose all power,  no throttle response and I am a glider at this point.  Coast down to the next exit, get off and pull into the parking lot at the bottom of the ramp.  Call Triple A and get towed to my mech.   He finally gets to tear into it this am.  Pulls the hose off the inter cooler and oil pours out.  Best guess is the seals to the turbo took a powder and dumped oil into the air intake and drained down into the bottom of the inter cooler.


 No car payments for the last 5 years and now this.  Anybody have a low time 2.0 Diesel you wanna get rid of?
