Bought car cheaply with problem already there. Fault 17965 turbo overboost was found by my mechanic tried a few things but nothing fixed the loss of power except turning the ignition off then back on whilst going along which solves it until the next time which could be the next few mins or next week? Mostly happens when overtaking or putting your foot down but can happen pulling away from 1st gear. My turbo went so replaced that with a re-con 7 months ago but that fault still remains. Vw currently have my car and after their diagnostic they claim the control arm in turbo has gone and they suggest a new turbo. Seems strange that both my turbos have the same fault and if thats really the only option why does the fault only occur occasionally? Should it still work sometimes?
