To properly answer your question, yes your car has an inter-cooler. Here is a link to Forge site to a replacement for your OEM one (this prove the existence of the stock one). I cannot find any definitive answer but as far as I can tell most (see lower) VW engines with turbos have an inter-cooler. It is generally located behind the bumper on either side of ...

One way you can find out if it's a leaking door seal is to apply glycerine to the door seals and then drive around to see if the noise changes or disappears. If there's no change at all, the sound is probably not coming from the seal. If it is quieter, or changes tone or pitch, then there's probably a gap somewhere. By applying the glycerine to only part of ...

I have a piece that is of same shape (not dismounted) in my new Octavia III 5E(facelift). It's in the glove box, fitted to the left, down.

I would say it just got loose, ...

There are a number of versions of the 2004 1.9 TDI engine which develop between 90bhp and 150bhp. That said, even the 90bhp version ought to be capable of 160kph plus. The first thing I would do is plug the car into a fault code reader. I'd scan it with a tool such as VDCS (the Lite freeware version will be sufficient for your needs here) and look for any ...

With this type of system, there's a main cable (or pull) which goes from the hand brake actuator to a splitter, then has two cables which go back to the rear brakes, which then actuates the parking brakes (either part of the primary brakes, or a secondary brake only used for parking). If one ...

A water cooled intercooler is simple. The intercooler core (where the compressed hot air passes through) is submerged in water from the cooling system (sometimes a separate cooling system). That way the water absorbs the heat and lowers the air's temperature. The system has various components. For which the locations are near or in front of the radiator and ...

If you are turning the wheel all the way (left or right) until it stops, this is called cramping the steering. What happens is, when you get it all the way over to one side and hold it there, the rack and pinion is telling the hydraulic fluid to continue to push the steering over to that side, but the steering mechanism cannot do it because it cannot go any ...

From the symptoms, I think the power steering belt will be slipping under the load at low engine speed.
