View Full Version : b5 s4 avant, terrible boost and oil leaks... Im in over my head.

So the title says it all, except that I dont want to hand the car over to a shop and fork over $2-3k to swap hoses out and reseal things up. I would have paid a shop to take care of it, but I just paid about $2k for new brakes, rotors, and control arms installed so Im tapped out for a few months, but this is my only ride.

If I had a garage I would be tackling this myself, but I live just east of downtown Denver and have no place to open up the car safely. Anyone have experience that would be willing to help me keep my car on the road?

Also wondering if its simply easier to pull the engine, install another engine thats in great shape and then rebuild and sell the leaky engine?

Has anyone else been through this?

Right now the car is in limp mode and is barely boosting.

creative suggestions are very welcome...

Have you figured out the leaks? What hoses need replaced? You supply the parts and I'll get it all done for you 6-800 depending on all the shit you want replaced.
