Hello, welcome to myturbodiesel.com.  
This is a passenger car turbo diesel website with an focus on Volkswagen TDI and Audi TDI.  On this website you'll find many writeups, articles, and frequently asked questions (FAQ) ranging from how a turbocharger works to DIY maintenance writeups on your car.

The difference between myturbodiesel.com and other car sites is that the content is updated, corrected, and added to in a standardized, easy to navigate, and easy to use format.  Writeups are not put out in .pdf file format because once a .pdf file is released, it gets passed around and saved.  It's impossible to make updates and corrections to a .pdf file if people are distributing old and outdated information.  The writeups on myturbodiesel.com are centralized so they can be kept up to date with the latest information.  Please do not copy the material and paste it elsewhere either because it won't be updated.  If you wish to share something on this site, please just post a link.

Writeups also feature links to vendors so that you can easily compare prices and parts for the work that you need to do.  Myturbodiesel is free to use and free to join so please sign up at the forums at Myturbodiesel.com forums or just browse through the writeups and general FAQ at 1000 answered questions - the turbodiesel FAQ.
