Hi just fitted new turbo to 2.5 5 cyl tdi toureg. Has been
Left for about 2 mths.turbo on and everything fine apart
From noisy tappets and a popping sound from air box.
The problem is I don't want to revv the life out of it to
Get the tappets pressurised
Any ideas would be great,many thanks Marcus

Just leave it idle, they will eventually fill back up.

Cheers have left it until engine and oil temp up, possibly
About 40 mins,you reckon leave it longer with heater on

Would have thought they wiuld have filled up by now. What happened to the turbo? The engine hasn't ingested anything has it?

It has77,000 was bought buy a friend with turbo gone.
Didn't know he bought it or getting it fixed.
He left it another guy and he fitted new turbo. 3 wks
After this it came to me not going well I has look at it
And told him turbo was away again and oil hadn't been
Changed or service done. So it went back to the other
Guy to be sorted and he has washed his hands of it(no
Surprise)so it has lay about around 6-8wks. New turbo
Got again and this time everything off cleaned and back
On with new oil etc. noise is definitely tappets but because
Of history Im abit weary lol cheers
